Why These Satay Noodle Are So Good

  • An addictive vegetarian noodle dish with Peanut Satay Sauce
  • Recipe from Chef Dale Pinnock of The Medicinal Chef Cookbook
  • 20 minute recipe, start to finish

Ingredients

  • Dry rice noodles
  • Cooking oil
  • Leek
  • Garlic cloves
  • Chili pepper
  • Shredded greens
  • Hot water
  • Chunky peanut butter
  • Dark soy sauce
  • Chinese Five Spice powder
  • Kosher salt

How To Make These Satay Noodles – Step By Step

  1. Soak the dry rice noodles in warm water for 5-8 minutes. In a bowl, whisk together the hot water, peanut butter, dark soy sauce, honey, five-spice powder, salt and set aside. We’ll be only using the white part of the leek (compost or use the green part to make broth). Wash the leek very well, separating the layers a bit to rinse out any dirt. Very thinly slice the leek.
  2. Heat the cooking oil in a large saute pan or wok over medium heat until just shimmering. Add the leek, garlic and chili pepper. Cook for 2 minutes (take care to not burn the garlic).
  3. Add the shredded greens and continue to cook until they have softened slightly, about 1 minute. Turn heat to medium-high and add in the soy sauce mixture
  4. Drain the rice noodles. When sauce begins to bubble a bit, add in the rice noodles and cook for 1-2 minutes or until the rice noodles are cooked.

Indonesia is thought to be the true birthplace of satay, but the dish was carried to surrounding countries including Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and others. The most popular satayischickenor pork satay, but beef is also used as well astofu satay.

This recipe cuts out the meat but is still so delicious and filling!

The beauty of (most) stir fries is that there are no rules about what vegetables and proteins go into them. You can use what’s in your fridge, rather than specifically shopping for ingredients to make something.

    This sounds so good. I have a problem though, my husband is allergic to peanuts. Have you ever tried the “peanut” recipes with almonds and almond butter? I have substituted them out on a few recipes, but not all are created equal. So I am asking for all who have loved ones with a peanut allergy.
    Thank you for your attention to this message.
