   Here’s another, more complex recipe for Gado Gado.  From the San
   Francisco Chronicle, date unknown.  I've done this 'un.  Pretty
   tasty...
   
   Put all the sauce ingredients except the lemon peel in a blender or
   food processor and puree.  Place in a saucepan with the lemon peel
   and cook over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, until thickened
   and darkened. Set aside and keep warm.
   
   Blanch the beans and carrots for 3 minutes, then run under cold water
   to stop cooking.  Blanch the cabbage and sprouts for a few seconds
   and run under cold water.  Arrange the vegetables in layers on a
   platter- -cabbage, beans, carrots, potatoes, cucumbers and sprouts on
   top.
   
   Garnish:  Scatter the tofu cubes over the sprouts.  Garnish with egg
   and tomato slices around the edges, then pour the sauce over and
   sprinkle all with the fried onions.
