Quick and Easy Satay Sauce

image

This is a non traditional recipe but it is quick and easy to prepare and gluten free!

The sauce goes really well with my satay chicken recipe on the blog and serve with white rice for a delicious dinner.

Barbecue prawns or tempeh are yummy with this sauce too.

Ingredients

1/2 brown onion, chopped very finely

1 tablespoon sesame oil

200g peanut butter, I use smooth

2 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce

270mls coconut milk

6 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce

Method

Heat the oil in a medium pan over a medium heat.

Once hot add the onion and lower the heat, cook slowly until softened.

Add the peanut butter, soy sauce, coconut milk and sweet chilli sauce.

Warm through and serve.

Tempeh With Avocado Salsa

image

After years in Indonesia we all have a weakness for tempeh.

It can be hard to find gluten free tempeh but it is out there, sometimes I find it in the local health food shops, otherwise, on line is easy too.

In Indonesia the tempeh was coated in flour, flavoured with spring onion, garlic and ginger.

As I have this for breakfast I just use garlic, it’s quicker and as the tempeh cooks I make a quick salsa, great for breakfast but a lovely light lunch too.

Serves 2-3.

Ingredients

20mls vegetable oil

1 clove garlic, roughly chopped

300g tempeh, sliced thinly

2 avocados, diced

1 lime juiced

Small bunch of coriander, chopped roughly

1 green chilli, deseeded and diced finely

Method

Heat a medium frying pan over a medium heat.

Add the oil.

Once hot add the garlic and tempeh slices.

Heat until underside is browned, flip over and move all the garlic to the side of the pan to let it cook more slowly.

Dice the avocado, add juice, coriander and chilli.

Place the salsa on the serving plate and add the cooked tempeh, top with the cooked garlic.
