We all have them. Our go-to-meals when our fridge stock is looking pretty sad. This Japanese Miso and Soba Noodle Soup is an ol’faithful for me. For my roomie Sami, its Satay! This simple Peanut Satay Recipe goes on anything! In the summer put it on a Summer Tofu Salad Bowl, in the cooler months I like it on this classic Indonesian style dish, served with steamed seasonal vegetables and hard boiled eggs. Thanks for the awesome recipe Sami!
“Gado Gado is a traditional Indonesian dish of steamed vegetables, tempeh, hard boiled eggs and is served with a delicious peanut sauce.”
I talked a little about the health benefits and the alleged risks associated with peanut butter in my previous post No Bake 100 Calorie Peanut Butter Energy Balls. For most recipes you can substitute in any other nut butters, such as almond butter, brazil nut butter or cashew butter (or get crazy and try ABC butter… yum). They all have similar nutritional benefits and all offer their own unique, nutty taste. This recipe will stay good in the fridge for a few days and is also great as a dip for cut up raw carrots and cauliflower!

Method for Simple Gado Gado Peanut Satay with Seasonal Vegetables
Start by putting the eggs on to boil. My method for hard boil eggs is to first place the eggs in a saucepan and cover with tap water. Place on medium high heat and bring to a boil. Let boil for about 6 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the eggs sit in the boiled water for a further 6 minutes. Drain the water and run the eggs under cool water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
Next prepare the vegetables by washing them and cutting them up into bit sized pieces. Place in a steamer and let steam for about 3-5 minutes.
While the vegetables are cooking, heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring regularly. Add the garlic and curry powder and let fry for about 30 seconds. Add the 3/4 cup of vegetable stock or water, peanut butter, honey and seeded mustard and stir to combine. Once the mixture is boiling and well combined, assess the consistency of the sauce. If you would prefer a more runny sauce add the remaning vegetable stock or water. Season to taste.
Shell the boiled eggs and slice each egg into 4 sections. Serve with the steamed vegetables and peanut sauce. Optional to serve with a side of steamed rice, and sprinkled with crushed peanuts.
