"Swimming Rama" is a dish that is becoming hard to find in Thailand, but is still served in many Thai restaurants overseas. Started by Chinese immigrants in Bangkok, swimming rama is made up of a bed of blanched morning glory or water spinach, topped with tender slices of pork or chicken (or tofu), with a peanut sauce poured on top. In Thailand this is often served as a "single-dish meal," which means that all the good stuff gets poured over rice!

I have to admit that I'm making a bit of a luxurious version here (because I can!) with lots of coconut milk, herbs, and peanuts, so it's extra rich. If you get this on the streets of Thailand, the gravy may be diluted with stock, and then thickened with starch.

You can also make this vegetarian friendly by omitting the meat altogether or substituting tofu or mushrooms. The sauce can be made far in advance and kept in the fridge for days, so this really can be a quick weeknight meal!
