Without the prawns, this is a vegan recipe. This is a great recipe for kids if you go light on the chilie. The peanut sauce freezes well. I often make a large batch of the sauce and freeze it in small containers. I just take one out of the freezer in the morning to cut down on dinner prep time. Leftovers make a great cold lunch.

*An easy way to julianne the cucumber is to use a mandoline. Peel the cucumber and using the julianne attachment on the mandoline create the julianne slices turning the cucumber to get at the meat around the outside while avoiding the seeds in the center.
