READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by sacredmama

I can't tell you how good these are. From White Grass Cafe Cookbook, from Davis, West Virginia. It's my favorite cookbook yet, focusing on natural foods. Serve with Hot Oriental Dipping Sauce that I will post as well.

Delicious....make sure if veggies get watery to squeeze liquid out before sauteing. Dipping sauce is wonderful.
