This morning on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with Kerän Sanders, I had the great pleasure of presenting a wonderful vegetarian Indonesian dish that really highlights seasonal vegetables and is so easy to prepare. The local vegetables are all sourced from Fresh Option Organic Delivery.
Gado gado (Indonesian peanut veggie dish)
Makes 2 cups
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 heaping tablespoon grated ginger
1 heaping tablespoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 cups hot water
4 tablespoons cider vinegar (or rice vinegar)
2 tablespoon soy sauce
Crushed red pepper to taste(or hot sauce)
- Put everything in a blender and puree until smooth. If it's too thick, add a little extra water.
Generously pour over steamed or sautéed veggies as listed below, placed over a bed of yellow rice (rice cooked with turmeric).
Optional veggies and toppings:
6 cups Organic Chopped Spinach
2 medium stalks Broccoli, steamed or sautéed
1 cup local Green & Wax Beans, steamed or sautéed

You can enjoy this hot or cold. Add veggies as they come into season.
