TT-Hop – Gado Gado with Tahoe and Tempeh

Gado-Gado is an Indonesion one-dish meal. Gado-Gado means “mix-mix” and that’s exactly what it is. Just mix a lot of vegetables with potatoes, boiled eggs, tahoe, tempeh and lontong. The dish is very easy to prepare and I really love eating it. It’s fresh, light and delicious.

You can use all kinds of vegetables: sliced cucumber, lettuce, sliced red bell pepper, endive, blanched green beans, blanched bean sprouts, blanched oxheart cabbage.

Other complements: Fried/baked tahoe, fried/baked tempeh, wedged boiled eggs, sliced boiled potatoes and emping (melindjo crackers). If you like you can marinate the tahoe/tempeh in some assam or soja before frying it.

Boil the lontong rice (rice cake with log shape) for about one hour. I always use the little plastic bags with lontong rice. When it’s cold, cut into cubes.

The most important part of the Gado-Gado is the sauce. You need a jar of peanut butter (350 gr), 1 tsp terasi (dried shrimp paste), 1 clove garlic, 1 red chili, 1 tsp sambal, 1/2 tbsp vinegar, 2 daun jeruk purut (lime leaf) , 2 daun salam (salam leaf), 8-10 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 santen (block coconut cream). Mince garlic, chili pepper with terasi. Put the mixture in a pot and add peanut butter. Put it on the stove, while stirring, slowly add water until the sauce is just as thick as you want it. Add all other ingredients. Let it simmer for about 10 minutes.

    I had no idea that making gado gado was so easy 🙂 Definitely something I want to try very soon! Your plate of veggies looks very fresh and appetising. It is morning right now, but I’d gladly have a helping of that right now!

    Gado gado is one of my favorite Indonesian meals. Hmm!

    I saw your first picture first (of course) and thought: “But? The sauce?!!!” And then of course you say it’s the most important thing of the dish. I love that peanut sauce. Thanks for the recipe. I’m looking forward to making this.

    I love gado gado 🙂 Never made it with tofu though. Must try that some day 🙂

    This is my kind of meal. I love your photos, makes me want to pull up a chair and join you for dinner or lunch. I can’t eat much soy, but I could substitute chicken, I bet.

    I love a mix like that, the tempeh would be an new addition for me, but it looks delicious!

    We often eat gado-gado when we’ve got some leftover (boiled) veggies like cauliflower, green beans, potatoes, carrot etc. Dried onions are a nice topping as well!

    You are a really persuasive writer. I can see this in your writeup. You’ve a way of writing compelling info that sparks significantly interest. eedbeacdabgc
