Gado Gado (Peanut Sauce) Stir Fry

An Indonesian dish with spicy peanut sauce that Tim and Karen made for us for dinner, to put on top of a delicious tofu and vegetable stir-fry. Yum!

2 T vegan butter for frying
1 cup chopped onion
2 medium cloves garlic (crushed)
1 bay leaf
1-2 T ginger (crushed)
1 small red pepper, diced (optional)

1 cup peanut butter
1 T honey
1 T vinegar
3 cups water
1 tsp salt
dash tamari
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp cayenne (or Sriracha to taste)

Optional garnish: sesame oil, sesame seeds

In a saucepan, cook the onions, garlic, bay leaf, pepper, and ginger in butter. When onions become translucent, add other ingredients. Simmer on low heat 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve the sauce over an artful arrangement of cooked vegetables and tofu! Optionally garnish with a drizzle of sesame oil and/or sesame seeds.

Would be nice if this were a little more yellow than brown... should I add turmeric?
