Guest Chef- Rochelle's South African Stir Fry

Last summer my friend Rochelle made this dish and brought it to our house for dinner. It was stir fry- pretty simple- but so very different than any I had ever had. And so unbelievably good! She made it again a week before she moved back to S.A. and had us over for dinner and a movie. When she made it she took pictures for me, and gave me the recipe so I could share it on my blog.
So I will share it now, and if you make it let me know what you think!
Thanks Rochelle, for all the fabulous new recipes and your influence on my cooking!
