Instructions

Whisk the orange juice, tamari and maple syrup pour over all of the cut vegetables (not the cilantro and basil). Mix well. Marinate in the dehydrator (or your oven on lowest temperature setting) for 30 minutes while you prepare the peanut sauce.

For the peanut sauce, put all of the ingredients except the tahini in the VitaMix and process until smooth. Add the tahini and blend only enough to mix (do not over process tahini). Add water as needed for desired consistency.

Remove vegetables from dehydrator and toss. Portion into individual bowls. Drizzle about a teaspoon of peanut sauce over vegetables and top with cilantro and basil.
