  • 1/2 c. Little Creek Dressing‘s Lemon Turmeric Dressing
  • 1 c. Coconut milk (canned)
  • 1/2 c. match-sticked or julienned carrots
  • 1 c. Thinly sliced bell peppers (red, orange or yellow, or an assortment)
  • 1/2 c. Sugar snap or snow peas
  • 1/3 c. Sliced water chestnuts
  • 1/2 c. Baby corn
  • 2 tbsp. grated/crushed fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp. crushed fresh garlic
    1tbsp. Sesame oil


  • 2c. Thawed and rinsed peeled and pre-cooked jumbo prawns
  • 1 tbsp. Vegan butter
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. chili flakes
  • S&P (to taste)



  1. Begin by putting a medium-sized pot of water on to boil.
  2. Once boiling, cook pasta according to package instructions, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Strain, and set aside in a covered pot while preparing the sauce and prawns. Do not rinse.
  4. Mince garlic and ginger, and sauté both with the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir gently for 2 to 3 minutes over medium-low heat, taking care to not allow to brown. Add water if needed, until ginger is softened.
  5. Add carrots, and sauté an additional 4 to 5 minutes, then add bell peppers and peas. Reduce stirring, and allow vegetables to crisp for 3 more minutes.
  6. Add baby corn, water chestnuts, coconut milk and dressing to the saucepan. Lower heat to minimum, cover, and simmer while preparing the prawns.
  7. In a small mixing bowl, combine spices and prawns, and toss well to coat. In a separate preheated pan, add butter, prawns, and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, until just heated through and beginning to curl. Remove from heat immediately, and set aside.
  8. Add the spaghetti to the pan with the sauce and vegetables, and stir generously to thoroughly coat each delicious bite. Plate, and top with 3-5 prawns. Set the table with the garnishes, call the family to the table, and enjoy!
  9. Definitely, don’t skip the toppings – fresh lemon wedges, green onions, and spicy chili crisp are must-haves for this dish! Mmmmm – now that’s more like it!
