Easy Satay chicken on vegetables

If you love satay and would like to make a convenient satay chicken (or tofu or beef), know that the trick is in the marinate.  It does not need to be skewered for home made satay.

Ingredients for marinade:
3 large thumb piece of turmeric
1 large stalk of lemongrass
1 piece galangal
6 cloves ginger
1 large onion
2 chillies
pinch of salt
lemon juice to taste

Vegetables blanched:
Bean sprouts
French beans, sliced
Carrots, cut into strips
Fresh mint leaves

Prepare you protein source, which can be 500g of chicken/ beef/ tofu.  Slice protein source.

1. Blend together all ingredients for marinade.  There will be enough marinate for at least 2 serves.  Save the extra serve in a small container in the freezer.
2.  Use the other half of the marinade in your prepared protein source.  Marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight in the fridge.
3.  Heat oil in pan and fry marinated meat/tofu until cooked.  Add an extra squeeze of lemon if preferred and some maple syrup to taste.
4.  Blanch all vegetables.
5.  Serve with cooked meat.  In this meal, I used chicken.
