vegan satay & dipping sauce

September 28, 2010

this recipe works with any protein, by the way. i’m using tofu here because more of my friends eat this than other proteins. chicken, pork, beef, etc. work just as well.

marinate tofu/meat in cayenne, ginger, garlic, and some kind of delicious spice blend. i’m making this today at a friend’s house who will have more latin-influenced spices than indian, so i’ll probably do cumin, lime juice, coriander, cinnamon, cilantro/coriander leaves, and whatever nutmeg/mace/allspice stuff she has. shrimp paste and fish sauce makes this authentically thai; lacto-fermented hot-pepper pickles add a sour tang and can be a substitute.
