“Definitely a comfort food, this can be the main course with rice rather than just a 'sauce' to put over the rice! If you're desperate and without cashew or sesame butter, try experimenting with tahini and/or peanut butter. Note: I have no idea how long it takes to chop the vegetables, and I realize the minutes don't add up to the total cook time. What can I say, I'm slow...but I sure can cook!”
