Confession: Sometimes I just don’t have fresh coriander in the house.
I know, its such a foodie fail. But, like most people, I just don’t. Therefore, sometimes I have to come up with things that taste delicious from stuff I find in the house and no fancy ingredients. This here satay is one of them. Sure it’s not like the legitimate stuff from your local Thai takeout, but it’ll do in a pinch, and as a bonus, it’s vegan.
Lazy Satay Curry
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
A few handfuls of whatever vegetables you have (I used capsicum,carrot, mushrooms and beans)
1 tablespoon whatever curry paste you have on hand
1 400g can coconut milk
1/2 cup veggie stock
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon sambal oelek or any other chili you might have
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon soy sauce
juice of 1 lime
1. Saute the onion in the oil for a few minutes, then add the curry paste. Cook 1 minute.
2. Add everything else and simmer 15-20 minutes.
And there you have it. A pantry dish for lazy nights.
