Thai food is one of my favorite types of food, the flavor, the spice, it just is phenomenal and there is so much to love about it. This time of year we tend to have soup for many meals, but you might be sick of the same type of soup over and over. Try this recipe with your whipped cream dispenser, it’s delicious and well worth it.
