Easy Vegan Satay Recipe and Sauce

Vegan Satay Recipe and Sauce

Also known as “sate,” satay is every bit as easy to make as it is to eat.

With its shish-kabob style, this makes the perfect meal option no matter your event. Serve it at a party and allow your guests to snack as they socialize. For a more casual gathering, serve it as the full entree. Just be sure to prepare enough for seconds; after just one bite, your guests are sure to want them.

To prepare this dish, simply plan enough time for your ingredients to marinate throughout the day while you’re at work. Then, come home, assemble your shish-kabobs, and complete the final steps in a matter of minutes!


  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 1 medium purple onion
  • 7 baby bella mushrooms
  • 1 block of extra-firm tofu (pressed)
  • 30 grape tomatoes
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons of sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of warm water
  • 4 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Vegetable oil (just a drizzle)


  1. To begin this recipe, prepare the marinade. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the coconut milk, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, curry powder, soy sauce, sesame oil, and salt.
  2. Mince the garlic cloves, and stir them into the marinade. Give it a final, vigorous whisk until all the ingredients are fully combined.
  3. Next, prepare the vegetables. Cut the yellow and red bell peppers and onions into bite-sized pieces. Similarly, cut the baby bella mushrooms into quarters. Be sure to press all excess liquid out of the tofu prior to cutting it into pieces as well.
  4. Toss the tofu and all the veggies (including the whole grape tomatoes) in the marinade, and then leave them to soak for at least thirty minutes.
  5. As the veggies soak in the marinade, prepare your sauce. In a bowl, combine the warm water, soy sauce, brown sugar, sriracha, lime juice, and garlic powder. Whisk this until the brown sugar dissolves, then add the peanut butter. Continue whisking until all the ingredients are fully combined.
  6. Finally, prepare and cook the satay! Run the vegetables and tofu along a skewer. We suggest using metal, but if you prefer a wooden option, remember to soak the bamboo skewers in water to prevent the edges from burning.
  7. Heat a pan over medium-high heat; add a drizzle of vegetable oil. Place the skewers in the pan to cook and sear the satay, turning it occasionally so that the contents are evenly brown.
  8. When the satay has fully and evenly cooked, serve it hot, alongside a generous scoop of homemade sauce. To flex your creative muscles, drizzle the sauce along the plate in an attractive pattern, serving the satay in the center to awe your guests;

  • 1 15-ounce can of kidney beans
  • 1 15-ounce can of garbanzo beans
  • 1 1/2 cups of oat flour
  • 1/2 cup of nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 cup of ground chia seed
  • 1/3 cup of warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons of five-spice seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • Fifteen ounces of pineapple juice
  • 2/3 cup of coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of corn starch
  • 1/2 cup of rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger


  1. Begin this recipe by making chia seed eggs. Combine the water and chia seeds, and allow them to soak until they’ve formed a gelatinous mixture.
  2. Next, blend the beans. Drain the kidney beans and garbanzo beans, place them in a food processor, and give them a few pulses. The result should be chunky and not quite stick together on its own.
  3. Add the gelled chia egg, nutritional yeast, five spice, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, and a little over half the oat flour. Continue pulsing until the ingredients are fully combined.
  4. Transfer the contents to a medium-sized mixing bowl, and then use a fork to continue pressing the remaining flour into the bean mixture to form a thick “dough.” If necessary, knead this mixture carefully using flour-coated hands.
  5. Return the mixture to the bowl, and place it in the refrigerator for at least forty minutes to chill.
  6. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  7. Remove the now chilled “meatball” mixture from the refrigerator and begin rolling it out. Wet your hands to prevent sticking, and then slowly pinch the mixture away in small chunks, rolling them in the palms of your hands until they are roughly two inches in diameter. If necessary, add a splash of water to loosen the consistency and prevent the vegan meatballs from cracking or falling apart.
  8. Place the vegan meatballs in a single layer on a glass baking dish, and bake them for around twenty-five minutes, flipping them halfway through.
  9. As the vegan meatballs cook, prepare the soy/sesame sauce. Combine the following ingredients in a small saucepan: pineapple juice, coconut sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, mustard, and ground ginger. Whisk the ingredients together, bring the sauce to a gentle boil, and then lower the heat to reduce the sauce to a simmer. After roughly two minutes, add the cornstarch to the sauce and stir until the sauce is as thick as you’d like.
  10. After the vegan meatballs have cooked, remove them from the oven and brush them with the sauce. If you prefer a stronger, stickier vegan meatball, you may loosen up the remaining sauce with a splash of water, and then drizzle it directly over the meatballs, allowing them to simmer in the sauce that falls to the bottom of the baking dish. If you choose this route, place the meatballs in the oven for an additional four to six minutes. Enjoy these hot, or freeze them to indulge in at your pleasure!
