Saté is a skewered meat (or non meat) dish that is popular throughout South East Asia, though a similar dish can be made with meat substitutes like TVP (textured vegetable protein).
TVP is a dried, soy product that is made with soy flour, which when rehydrated can be flavoured as you wish, making it quite versatile. Warning: it looks like dog food, but that’s okay because it can taste like what ever you marinate it in. In this case, peanut sauce!
1 cup TVP chunks
8-10 bamboo skewers
2 cups vegetable broth
Easy Peanut sauce
3 tablespoons peanut butter
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
3 tablespoons water
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Peanut sauce can either be runny or thick, so if you want a thick sauce, add less water.
In a large pot, boil the broth, remove from heat and add the TVP chunks. Let sit for an hour so that the TVP absorbs all the liquid. Once the broth and TVP has cooled, hold a handful of TVP over the sink and squeeze out all the liquid, just like a sponge!
Skewer 4-5 pieces of TVP per saté, and cook over a grill or barbeque until toasty-brown. Once cooked, slather in delicious peanut sauce.
