I was feeling creative last night...needed a veggie side dish and this is what I came up with. DH insisted I need to post this since he knows I'll never write it down, hence he'll never get to have it again otherwise!

My partner made something based on this recipe tonight. He added chili powder, ginger, and sweetened dry coconut based on Veggiequeen's suggestion, and we also put in a small zucchini we had. We ate it with whole wheat fettuccine, as we often do with stir-fry. We both really liked it--it's mild and the flavors really play well together. I'm going to make him fix it again.
