Tofu satay with peanut sauce

Tofu satay with peanut sauce


  2. 2 lemongrass stalks, trimmed and finely chopped
  3. 15g (7 1/2 scoops of coffee) fresh ginger root, finely chopped
  4. 2 plump cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
  5. 1 red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped if you prefer it less spicy
  6. 1.5 tsp ground cumin
  7. 2 tsp ground coriander
  8. 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  9. 1/2 tsp agave
  10. 3 tsp tamari or soy sauce
  11. 1 tbsp rapeseed oil or olive oil
  13. 100g (6 tablespoons) smooth peanut butter
  14. 140 ml (approx. 1/ 2 cup) coconut milk
  15. 3/4 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
  16. 2 teaspoons lime juice
  17. 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  18. 1 1 /2 tbsp protein powder (optional)
  19. 2 lime wedges



  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in cold water for about 20-30 minutes to prevent them from burning while cooking the saté
  • Prepare the marinade – finely chop the lemongrass, ginger root, chillies and mix with the crushed garlic in a bowl. Add ground cumin, coriander, turmeric, agave syrup, lime juice, tamari/soy sauce, and canola or olive oil. Alternatively, you can puree this all into a paste in a food processor
  • Prepare protein – Cut the tofu into thick slices (or cubes, if you like), about 1.5 cm thick skewer)
  • Prepare satay – Place peanut butter, coconut milk, chili flakes, tamari or soy sauce, lime juice, and your protein powder of choice in a small bowl. Heat saucepan over low heat and melt peanut butter and mix all the ingredients to a thick sauce. Pour into a bowl and garnish with 2 slices of fresh red pepper
  • Spread the tofu with the satay marinade in the fridge for at least 30 minutes
  • Grill the marinated tofu slices for about 4-5 minutes on each side. (Hint: They’re also great for grilling)
  • Season with a little ground black pepper. Serve with a tangy protein peanut satay sauce, lime wedges (the spiciness contrasts beautifully with the creamy and tangy marinade) and a salad
