    Sharon123's Note:

    This is a colorful stir-fry. The vegetables are cooked in a marvelously aromatic sauce, which combines peanuts, pine nuts, chili, coconut, coriander, and turmeric.

      Soooo yummy!!!! I didn't have a chili pepper but used about a tablespoon the chili sauce instead. Could also be really tasty with chicken, shrimp or tofu.
      Thanks for posting this Sharon!!!

      oooohhh so good. I used mini sweet peppers, red and yellow, oyster mushrooms, sugarsnaps, the carrots and some baby thai eggplants. Lowered the fat by use half the coconut milk, and low fat coconut milk as well. Added cocounut essence to get the extra coconut flavor. Also only used a tsp of sesame oil along with n fat spray on the pan.
