Satay is originally from Indonesia, but is served in many Southeast Asian countries in regional variations, for example in Japan as Yakitori. The grilled meat skewers are often dipped in peanut sauce.
In the colonial era, the dish became part of Dutch cuisine and is extremely popular in the Netherlands.
That way I got to know satay as a child and have worked a lot on vegetarian and later vegan versions. I already have a delicious seitan satay on my blog, but many of you find seitan too much hassle.
So here is my soy satay! Much easier, quick and tasty. The sticks can also be prepared in advance and taken to a barbecue. I also like them cold from the lunchbox.
German vegan online shop Vantastic Foods.com*, who I am an affiliate partner of, have provided me with the soy medaillons that I used for this recipe. I used half the bag to make 6 sticks, which were perfect for Tom and me.
You probably know textured soy protein, right? If you don’t, this is the perfect recipe to try this amazing meat replacement. Check them out here.*
Those wooden skewers are sold in most supermarkets.
Soy satay with spicy peanut sauce
That is of course the best combination. You can find my quick spicy peanut sauce recipe here.
What goes well with satay sticks?
Indonesian noodle dish Bami Goreng is perfect with it of course.
These sides are delicious with it too:
- 100 g (3,5 oz.) textured soy protein
- 480 ml (2 cups) veggie broth
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon ginger powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- spicy peanut sauce
- Simmer the soy protein in veggie broth with soy sauce and ginger powder for about 10 minutes, then let them cool off and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. The more moisture is squeezed out, the firmer the satay.
- Rip them in 2-3 pieces each. Roast them in a skillet with onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika and soy sauce. Then put them on skewers as soon as they’re ok to touch.
- You can serve the soy satay right away with spicy peanut sauce, cilantro and fresh lime or throw them on the grill later.
