Peanut, Almond & Walnut Satay Sauce Noodles

Hello everyone!  A popular dish in Asia is Satay, which consist of skewers of veggies/meat.  This is topped off with a rich peanut sauce.  Truly indulgent!

I’ve tried making this slightly healthier with mixing almonds and walnuts in a peanut-based sauce.  It came out creamy & simply delish!  Had this with veggies and noodles for a “Vegeterian Satay Noodle” dish.

Peanut, Almond & Walnut Satay Sauce Noodles

Ingredients:

For Sauce:

  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 10-12 walnuts
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 1 green chilli
  • little brown sugar (1/2 tsp or more to taste)
  • Sauces to taste:  Soya Sauce (Dark/Light), Lingam Chilli Sauce (Sweet Chilli), Hot Chilli Sauce, Ketchup

For the noodles:

  • Mushrooms
  • Tofu (pan fried into cubes)
  • Capsicum
  • Beansprouts
  • 1 packet of noodles

Method:

  • Take all the sauce ingredients and blend with some water with a high powered blender.  FYI, I use a Nutribullet, which works fine!
  • Boil mixture in a pan till flavours are well combined.
  • Add sauces to taste.
  • In a separate pan, sauté the vegetables with some oil.
  • Add Chinese yellow noodles and combine.
  • Add peanut sauce and mix.
  • Garnish with some fresh vegetables.

 

I used to eat Satay Noodles in this vegetarian restaurant in Darling Habour in Sydney.  I would meet my dad once a week during his break from meetings and my break from Uni.  My sister would time her break similarly and we all would meet there!  I was reminiscing and thought I should try making SATAY NOODLES at home, with a bit of a healthier twist.  FYI – sauces are very unhealthy, next time I’ll try going completely natural without any sauce.  Let’s see how that pans out!

For now – I’m looking forward to Boxing Day Sales!!
