Satay Vegetable Curry with Quinoa

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes


  • ½ head cauliflower cut into small florets
  • ½ head broccoli cut into small florets
  • 1 medium sweet potato peeled and cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 1 red capsicum sliced thinly
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra-virgin
  • 1 tsp fine salt
  • 2 cups quinoa


  • 2 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 small piece fresh ginger peeled
  • 1 medium fresh red chilli roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ½ red onion peeled and roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup peanut butter natural
  • 1 lime zest and juice
  • ½ cup fresh coriander
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 400mL can coconut cream
  • 125 ml vegetable stock
  • chilli roughly chopped, to garnish
  • peanuts roughly chopped, to garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) and line a tray with non-stick baking paper.
  • Place the broccoli, cauliflower and sweet potato onto the prepared tray. Toss gently with olive oil and sea salt until well coated. Roast for 25 – 30 mins, or until tender.
  • Wash quinoa under cold, running water in a fine mesh strainer, gently rubbing the seeds to ensure that any saponins have been removed. Saponins are just natural forming insecticides that can give the quinoa a slightly bitter taste if not removed.
  • Combine 2 cups quinoa with 3 cups water and a pinch of salt into a large saucepan and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cover. Simmer for 10 – 15 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed. Allow it to rest for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
  • Meanwhile, puree the sauce ingredients (except for the coconut cream and stock) in a food processor until a paste is formed. Add the coconut milk and stock and blend until smooth. Set aside until the vegetables are cooked.
  • When the vegetables are finished, remove the tray from oven and add spinach and capsicum. Add the sauce and stir to distribute evenly. Return to oven for 10 – 15 minutes or until sauce is warmed through.


Serve with quinoa, chopped peanuts and extra chilli if desired.
