4 cups brown rice, cooked *see note below
4-5 cups chopped zucchini
1 can garbanzo beans

2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon Bragg’s liquid aminos (or soy sauce)
1 tablespoon curry powder (to taste)
1 Add your peppers, onion, garlic, and carrots to a skillet and dry sauté on medium heat (250-300 degrees). Cover your skillet and let the steam cook the veggies.
2 Next, put the tomato sauce, Bragg’s, peanut butter, curry powder, and cilantro into a blender and blend until smooth.
3 Stir your veggies and then add the zucchini and add a little bit of water. Cook covered for about 5 minutes more.
