lemon grass peanuts… WOW – Vietnam

Version française

The only recipe learned in ta van

As explained a few times in my article about our voluntering experience in Ta van, my recipe of the apple and cinnamon tea or the one of my apple pie… Entering a vietnamese kitchen is much more difficult than expected

But I managed to take this recipe, super simple but so good, for you… or maybe for me… but we can share.
