Recipe by Manami
This is from EatingWell.com and am posting this as a request. This sauce should taste fantastic! Can't wait to taste it! Am posting the recipe as is but we would make it without the jalapenos. Can be frozen for up to 3 months.

This dish was sooo different, but amazing. My guests were blown away by the complex flavors. It is a very easy way to wow guests. (One vegetarian guest just ate the sauce plain!)
