Vegetables in a Spicy Peanut Sauce

 
 
I love chinese vegetables in spicy sauces, and this thai inspired sauce is so good with vegetables. Peanut butter has been such a revelation to me, as it's not just for spreading on toast. You can add it to hummus, to sauces like this one, to punches, granola bars and muffins. From sweet to savory it such a versatile ingredient in your pantry.
