This is an easy, colorful vegetarian dish that we've made twice in the last couple of days. 1st time (potluck last night) I substituted olive oil for the peanut oil, left out the pepper and my husband added 1 teaspoon Five Spice. 2nd time (potluck tomorrow) I again substituted olive oil for peanut oil (my husband was concerned about allergies to peanuts), left out the pepper, added 1 teaspoon of Five Spice and also added about 1/2 teaspoon of ginger.
