Beautiful and very tasty dish - it's a healthy take on your typical asian peanut stir fry and super easy to make.  Can be eaten hot or cold and is especially yummy the next day when all of the flavors have had time to mix. This recipe is taken from the new Revive cookbook, another fabulous book with all vegetarian recipes.
