orange miso thai--Journey for JessiWhat is more satisfying than a colorful, flavorful, vegan Thai dish?  Not much… well desserts, but that is a given.  I made this dish several times during my vegan challenge month.  I had it for dinner, then stored the left-overs in the fridge to pack for lunches and have for dinner again later on during the week.  It is a great dish for meal preparation.  (The dish was inspired by Angela Liddon.)Ingredients
