28 Dec 2022 • 5 min read

Looking for a plant based tofu curry? Look no further than this inviting almond butter satay recipe, made by Gaz Oakley for H&B. Bringing to life tofu skewers with a flavoursome, nutty sauce, this vegan dish is served up with steamed rice, fresh vegetables and aromatic coriander.



  • For the skewers:

    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • Thumb-sized piece ginger, minced
    • 1 onion, finely chopped 
    • 1 tbsp lemongrass paste
    • 1 tsp ground turmeric
    • 3 tbsp sriracha sauce
    • 1 tbsp tomato puree
    • 1/2 cup flaked almonds, toasted (plus extra for garnish)
    • 2 tbsp Pip & Nut almond butter
    • 1 tsp sea salt
    • 2 tbsp coconut sugar or sweetener of your choice
    • 3 tbsp soy sauce
    • 1/2 cup/125ml Rude Health tiger nut milk
    • 1 extra firm block tofu. Gaz recommends Tofoo, cubed
    • 1 red onion, peeled cubed
    • 1 red pepper, deseeded & cubed
  • Serve with:

    • Steamed Jasmine rice
    • Salad
    • Fresh coriander



Pre heat your oven to 180º C (degree Celsius).


Place a saucepan over a medium heat & add a little oil, followed by the garlic, ginger, onion & lemon grass paste, sauté for 2 minutes before adding the turmeric, sriracha & tomato puree. After another minute add the toasted almonds, give them a rough chop first.


Stir well then add the rest of the ingredients plus 500ml of boiling water. Pop a lid on the pan and let the sauce bubble away for 15 minutes.


Meanwhile, make your skewers. Alternate between pieces of tofu, red onion & pepper. Place the skewers into a baking dish & drizzle over a little oil.


Pop them into the oven to colour for 10 minutes.


When the sauce has thickened and the skewers are a little golden, pour some of the sauce over the skewers & place the tray back into the oven for 20 minutes.


Any leftover sauce can be stored in an air tight container for a couple of weeks in the fridge. It’s great for stir fries too.


When the skewers are cooked serve them up with steamed rice, a little salad & fresh coriander.
