Student Eats: Easy Satay Sauce


I’m back with another easy student meal! This time in the form of the most simple home-made satay sauce. I must eat this meal weekly at uni and I love it. It’s so simple so I hope you enjoy it too.

You Will Need – For The Sauce:

Sesame Oil

Soy Sauce

Peanut butter of your choice (I love crunchy and the value on is so cheap but higher in fat so suit one that your personal tastes)

Ginger & Garlic (I use the squeezy pastes at uni as it the bottles say I’m very lazy)

Chilli flakes (can use fresh if you prefer)

For the stir Fry: 

Vegetables of your choice – this meal is great for the end of the week when your veg is starting to turn. Alternatively, often at uni I buy in frozen bags of stir fry veg which lasts a good four-five meals and doesn’t go off which saves wastage and money! Always important as a student.

Protein of your choice – I either use tofu or Quorn chicken



  1. Put your garlic, chilli, ginger and soy sauce in a bowl with the peanut butter. There’s no set measurements for this just go on your personal taste buds and quantity needed.
  2. Add a tiny amount of boiling water and combine until it is a smooth sauce.
  3. Fry off your tofu/Quorn/meat etc in sesame oil. Sesame oil has a higher smoking point which is perfect for stir fries  and adds a lovely nutty flavour.
  4. Add your vegetables and continue to stir fry
  5. Cook your noodles according to the packet (I use rice noodles as gluten free so they need to be cooked separately, but some types can be added to the stir fry)
  6. Add the sauce and combine well
  7. Serve with sesame seeds on top and enjoy





Lots of love, Rose x
