A quick stir fry with a tasty wok sauce is a great way to get dinner on the table fast. Cook the vegetables until they are just crisp-tender and still have a slight crunch. This preserves the nutrients and provides the perfect texture.

For the Thai Peanut Sauce (see note):
1 1/2 cups water
7 regular dates or 3 1/2 Medjool dates, pitted
1/3 cup natural, unsalted peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon red curry powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
For the Vegetables:
1 cup chopped onions
6 cups broccoli florets
1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper strips
2 cups trimmed snow peas
2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms


To make the sauce:
Blend water and dates in a high-powered blender, then add peanut butter, coconut, ginger, lime juice and spices and blend again until smooth and well-combined.

To cook the vegetables:
Heat 1/4 cup water in a large non-stick wok or skillet, then add chopped onions and broccoli, cover and cook for 4 minutes stirring occasionally and adding additional water as needed to prevent sticking. Remove cover and add red bell pepper strips, shiitake mushrooms and snow peas and cook for an additional 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add desired amount of sauce and continue to stir fry for 1-2 minutes to heat through.

Serve with wild rice, if desired.

This is outstanding. The sauce is amazing. Great flavor from the spices and coconut and dates. Vegetables came out perfectly crispy. I served this with forbidden rice. My husband loved this dish too, "Wow", he said. Thank you!

We enjoyed this recipe very much. It is easier to make than the Asian Vegetable Stir-fry, which is quite similar in flavor. I added some leftover raw eggplant and zucchini that I had on hand plus 2 cups of cooked garbanzo beans for a heartier dish. I made one and a half times the sauce recipe to allow for the extra veggies. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that the sauce seemed quite thin so I added 1 Tbs. of organic cornstarch to thicken.

At least with the Safari and Chrome browsers, it won't let me add a rating, so let me say I give this 5 stars.  I've made it twice now, and the second time I doubled up on the spices and sauteed the veggies in Chardonnay.  My mushroom and curry hating husband never noticed the shitakes and loved the sauce.  I will be making this frequently.

5 stars!   I can't figure out how to increase the stars from 3-5!


5 stars.  Delicious.  All four of my boys ate it and I made a second recipe right away so my husband could have some and I could have some  for lunch the next day. The cooking method was helpful and the veggies were cooked perfectly.  I I used snap peas cut in thirds as I forgot to buy snow peas.
