Vegetarian satay sticks

11 Mar

Satay chicken, blah. It’s all about cauliflower. Cauliflower kicks the arse of chicken.

Peanut satay sauce*

  • 1/2 C peanut butter (get one without added sugar)
  • 1/4 C coconut milk
  • 2 TBSP lemon juice
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 2 lime leaves
  • 1/2 red birds eye chilli, finely chopped
  • 1/2 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced

Satay sticks (to make 4 satay sticks)

  • About 1/4 head of cauliflower, chopped into florets (but any veg you like, cauliflower is good in that it can hold onto sauces both in flavour and structure)

Heat a small amount of peanut or veg oil in a small pan. Throw in chopped shallots.

Add remaining ingredients, adding extra water, lemon juice, coconut or peanut butter according to taste.

Meanwhile, cook cauliflower florets in another pan in a bit of veg oil. Allow to blacken in parts. When cooked stick onto skewers.

Remove lime leaves from satay sauce and pour over cauliflower skewers.

* This makes enough for probably double the amount of skewers.

Estimated cost: £2

Musical accompaniment: The Cave Singers
