Low fat, plant-based laksa

Before we had kids, my partner and I would always make laksa from scratch at home. It would be spicy, messy and full of chicken. Coconut milk would make the basis of the soup. Since changing to a whole food, plant-based diet we haven't tried to replicate the dish, until now. Even the kids loved this recipe. The cashew butter provides the creamy taste without the saturated fat. Nourishing, delicious and better than the traditional recipe.
