All you need to do is stir fry some veges Elaine.  Then add the peanut sauce - you will then have something that resembles Thai food very darn closely.

A broader use for peanut sauce like this is indicated is the Indonesian dish Gado Gado which is a vegetable 'salad'.

Gado-gado is a salad of slightly boiled, blanched or steamed vegetables and hard-boiled eggs, boiled potato, fried tofu and tempeh, and lontong, served with a peanut sauce dressing.

You don't need to be boutique about it and use exotic ingredients like tofu, lontong or tempeh as eggs, steamed potatoes and green beans will suffice. Just arrange them on the plate and pour over the peanut sauce.

The combo is really up to you. You can use baby potatoes,  snow peas , cauliflower florets , broccoli florets ,  sliced carrots, and bean sprouts.Raw sliced cucumber is good too. The hard boiled eggs  are especially tasty under the peanut sauce. The rest add bulk, nutrition and crunch.

What would you eat it with if you don't make Thai food?

I'm still struggling to cope with the fact something so damn tasty is just so easy.  Assemble.  Blend. Bottle.
