Veganize It!: Green Beans with Minced "Meat" in Sateh Sauce

Back in the days when I still used boxed mixes for cooking, this mix had to be one of my favorites. Nowadays, I can't really eat it anymore because it is so salty!

I am no longer used to it. But when I saw a recipe based on this mix in a cookbook from Koken Met Karin, I had to try it. Funny thing is that when you replace the minced meat with faux minced meat and leave out the trassi (shrimp paste) that she used, the recipe is really easy to veganize. Really tasty too! So I can finally enjoy this dish again.

Green Beans with Minced "Meat" in Sateh Sauce (serves 4)
- 350 gr faux minced meat
- 400 gr green beans
- 1 red bell pepper
- 2 spring onions
- 1 small can of corn
- 100 gr unsalted peanuts
- 1 tsp sambal
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 200 ml coconut milk
- dash of Japanese soy sauce
- sunflower oil
- rice for serving

In a food processor, mix onions, garlic, sambal, peanuts and a pinch of salt until you have a paste. Make sure you scrape the sides from time to time. Cut the green beans in 3 cm pieces and steam them. Cut the bell pepper. Heat some oil in a pan and saute the peanut paste for about 2 minutes until it begins to smell good. Add the faux minced meat and the bell pepper and bake shortly. Add the coconut milk and soy sauce. Rinse and drain the corn. And add this together with the green beans to the sauce. Leave to simmer with a lid on the pan for about 2 minutes until warmed through.
