In Lombok in Indonesia, they simply love cooking with mung sprouts and water spinach. Really, they are part of at least half of traditional Lombok specials. This time it is gado gado with peanut sauce. You can find so many flavors and recipes of peanut sauce all around Indonesia. The great thing about this one is, that it is very simple, fast, with just a few ingredients used and still soooo delicious :)

- Tempeh tofu veggie curry - Santan sayur tempe
This amazing Indonesian curry I learned in a street restaurant on Lombok island. Except for the very interesting cooking as usual, may be more interesting was watching the couple which owned the restaurant with a little shop. The woman managed to cook a few delicious dishes, get, carry and store all good from several suppliers and her husband was hanging around coloring his hair.....

Fast, easy, with minimum of ingredients. Simply ideal recipe. Dish, I tried on a Thai local market. Pleasantly light for the hot days and not spicy either. Back home I tried it with young green beens and it was pretty good too.

Nice light and warm salad, where the spicy ingredients are balanced by tender fresh grated coconut. And like most of Sri Lankan dishes it is vegetarian and vegan too.
