Gado Gado (Vegetarian Satay)

Updated: Jan 11

I have been to Bali several times and just loved ordering the Gado Gado over there which is basically a vegetable bowl drizzled in satay sauce! So I decided to create my own version. You can use any vegetables you have in your fridge.

Ingredients (2 serves)

  • 2 carrots, chopped into sticks

  • 1/4 head cabbage, sliced

  • 2 cups mushrooms

  • 1 capsicum, sliced thinly

  • 1 cup cooked basmati or brown rice

  • 1 spring onion, chopped finely

  • 4 boiled eggs, chopped in halves

For the satay sauce

  • 2 tbsp peanut butter

  • 2 tbsp kecap manis (or 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce and 1/2 tsp honey)

  • 1 tsp fish sauce

  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 100ml coconut milk


  1. Cook the mushrooms and cabbage in non-stick fry pan over medium heat with some olive oil for 5 minutes until cooked to your liking.

  2. Prepare the rice and boiled eggs.

  3. For the sauce: place all ingredients into a nutri-bullet or blender and mix until smooth.

  4. Prepare the vegetable bowls by adding all your ingredients into the bowl then drizzling the satay sauce on top and garnish with spring onions. Season to taste.

Enjoy x
