Packed with flavour and super easy to make these Thai tofu satay skewers will impress both vegan and non vegans!
It’s no surprise to you that I love Asian cuisine and I know you guys do too! Some of my most popular dishes are Thai or Indian recipes and I can’t wait to share this one with you!
So what is Thai tofu satay? Quite simply it’s tofu marinated in a red thai curry and coconut sauce. It is then placed onto skewers and grilled on a griddle pan or bbq!
And no satay would be complete without a peanut sauce, in this case a spicy thai peanut sauce. It’s made up of red thai curry pasta, peanut butter, coconut milk, maple syrup and soy sauce. This gets a simmer for a few minutes until thickened.
The inspiration for this recipe comes from Recipe Tin Eats, when I saw her thai chicken satay I knew I had to adapt it and make it vegan friendly!
They’re also adapted from my Veggie Satay Noodles which are one of my all time favourite peanut butter recipes!
For the tofu in this recipe you want to make sure you buy an extra firm one. If you can’t find any make sure you press out as much water as you can beforehand.
You don’t want the tofu to be falling apart when placing on the skewers or grilling! If you’re in the UK I always buy the brand Tofoo which you can find in most big supermarkets.
You also want to use a natural peanut butter and not one that is full of sugar and additives. You can find my recommendation in the recipe below!
Make sure you also use a vegan red thai curry paste as they often have fish paste in. I use the Blue Dragon pots, not the jars as they have fish sauce for some reason, but the small pots don’t.
These thai tofu satay skewers would make the perfect starter or main with some sticky rice! However you serve them they’ll be enjoyed!

I use blue dragon thai red curry paste (in the pot, the jars aren't vegan) Switch it up by using soy pieces, seitan or tempeh. If you have extra peanut sauce, use it in a stir fry or thin it with some water and use as a dressing! Recipe adapted from Recipe Tin Eats.
