This recipe is based on one in Deborah Madisons "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" and I use it nearly weekly. It's simple and easy. It has a nice balance of tangy and peanutty and is delicious on steamed broccoli, raw red bell pepper, pan seared tofu and soba noodles. Please enjoy:-)

Sooo good and EASY! I always seem to mess up the ones I have to cook! I used this over rice noodles, and used a bit of the cooking liquid instead of regular water, because I was afraid the natural peanut butter I used wouldn't combine properly. It worked just fine. Thanks!
