INGREDIENTS – For the Thai Peanut Sauce

  • 1 cup water or unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
  • 3 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons natural, unsalted peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon lemon grass paste, optional

INGREDIENTS – For the Vegetables

  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 6 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper strips
  • 2 cups trimmed snow peas
  • 2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 2 cups shredded Chinese cabbage

DIRECTIONS – To make the sauce:
Blend water or non-dairy milk and dates in a high-powered blender, then add peanut butter, hemp seeds, coconut, ginger, lemon grass paste, curry powder and turmeric and blend again until smooth and well-combined.
DIRECTIONS – To cook the vegetables:
Heat 1/4 cup water in a large non-stick wok or skillet, then add chopped onions and broccoli, cover and cook for 4 minutes stirring occasionally and adding additional water as needed to prevent sticking.
