arrange the steamed vegetables in layers on fat platter, potatoes, then
bean sprouts, carrots & cucumber. Put the tomatoes and tofu on top. For the
sauce, heat the oil in a wok or large pan. Stir fry the garlic, onion, and
chili for 2-3 minutes. Add the peanut butter, lemon juice or vinegar and

the hot sauce over the vegetables and garnish with scallion, onion slices.
