A delightfully versatile and healthy Indonesian salad with spicy peanut sauce!

Serves 4

Turmeric Marinated Tofu
2 blocks of tofu, extra firm
3 tablespoons coconut milk
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon turmeric (I used Piquant Post Turmeric Gold)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sambal olek

Gado Gado Sauce
1/3 cup peanut butter (or 1/4 cup powdered peanut)
4 teaspoons red curry paste
3 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sambal olek
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons lime
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup water

Gado Gado Veggies
1 bunch spinach, blanched
1 medium potato, washed boiled till tender and then cut into 1” bite sized pieces
1 cucumber sliced on the diagonal
1 cup sprouts
Garnishes: red chili (sliced), lime, chopped peanuts, cilantro

Step One
Pre-heat the oven to 425°F. Cut the tofu into 1” cubes. Place the tofu onto a paper towels and cover with another paper towel. Gently press on the tofu to remove some of the excess liquid. Allow to sit 5-10 minutes, changing the paper towels if necessary. Press gently one last time between the paper towels and transfer to a mixing bowl. Take the coconut milk, lime juice, Piquant Post Turmeric Gold, minced garlic, and sambal olek sauce and combine them together in a separate bowl. Whisk until well combined. Pour over the tofu and gently toss until the tofu is well coated. Spread the marinated tofu onto a parchment lined baking sheet and place in the oven. Cook for 20 minutes and then turn the tofu over on the tray. Cook for another 20-30 minutes.

Step Two
To make the Gado Gado sauce, add the peanut butter, red curry paste, soy sauce, samba olek, sea salt, garlic, lime, coconut milk, and water. Whisk until the sauce is creamy and well combined. Set aside

Step Three
To prepare the veggies, bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add the spinach to the boiling water and cook for 30 seconds or until the spinach is wilted. Remove the spinach and add the potatoes and boil until tender through the center. When the potatoes are cooked, remove from the water and allow to cool. Cut into bite sized pieces. Set aside. Slice the cucumber into 1/8” thick slices on the diagonal. Arrange the spinach, potato, cucumber and cooked tofu on a platter. Garnish with sprouts, red chili, lime, chopped peanuts and cilantro.

Step Four
Drizzle some of the peanut sauce over the veggies or serve with the sauce on the side. Serve with hot sauce if desired!

Gado Gado is a perfect salad for the summertime! The healthy veggies make a light meal and the peanut sauce adds a rich flavorful component to the dish.
Serve with rice or noodles for a a complete and satisfying meal. Try it with brown rice or quinoa for a healthy twist.
We recommend extra firm tofu for this because it holds up well when marinated. You can also use tempeh for a nuttier flavor profile!

Alternatives and Substitutions:
If you want to make this recipe lighter and less fattening, try substitutions powdered peanut butter for the regular peanut butter. It will cut out extra oil and calories, but still makes a delicious and rich sauce.
