Gado Gado is an authentic vegetarian Indonesian salad, full of protein (tofu + usually with boiled eggs, but I somehow missed them) – with a dense peanut sauce that takes the dish next level. Let’s be honest, I would dip anything into that sauce – or just eat it on it’s own!!
A multi-layered veg delight, a combination of raw and cooked, sliced and arranged.
3 tbsp organic crunchy peanut butter
1 tbsp organic tamari
1/2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp raw honey
1 kaffir lime leaf *blitzed
3 drops doTERRA lime oil
1 drop doTERRA ginger oil
boiling water *as required
1 pack organic firm tofu
3 tbsp organic corn flour
shichimi togarashi *(Japanese red pepper seasoning mix – found in asian stores)
cracked black pepper
organic coconut oil
Assorted chopped veggies – including crispy lettuce, carrot, boiled potato, cucumber, tomato, peppers, cabbage, beans, spring onions, sprouts + boiled eggs.
Mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a bowl. Gently add a little boiled water at a time until you get a nice thick sauce consistency. Set aside.
Drain the tofu on paper towel + pat dry carefully.
Add the corn flour, shichimi togarashi, sea salt + cracked black pepper into a small bowl (to taste). Set aside.
Add a tbsp or so, of coconut oil to a frypan over a med-high heat.
Gently coat each piece + sides of the tofu cubes in the cornflour mixture, and add to the hot frypan. Continue to flip tofu until all sides are golden brown + crispy. *add more coconut oil if necessary
Serve immediately with chopped veggies + peanut sauce.

There’s always a place for herbs and spices – we need the variety of nutrients they offer!
