Thai Shrimp Stew with Kale

Our Thai Shrimp Stew recipe will warm you up on a cold winter night. Thai cuisine is among the healthiest foods you can eat. This is due to the use of fresh ingredients and the lack of fats. Many of the spices used are also believed to have medicinal qualities. Many fresh herbs and spices like turmeric, ginger, and lemongrass possess immune-boosting and disease-fighting properties. Then, our good friend, Joyce, adds kale to make it even better for you. Trust me; you would be now if you weren't a fan of Thai food.
