150 g

Egg, whole, raw

4 medium, raw


125 g, shredded


2 large, cut into wedges


1 individual, extra large, halved lengthways, and sliced on the diagonal


50 g

Olive Oil

3 teaspoon(s)

Spring Onions

3 medium, trimmed and finely chopped


2 clove(s)

Root Ginger

1 inch slice(s), grated


½ teaspoon(s)

Smooth Peanut Butter

100 g

Reduced fat coconut milk, tinned (7.7% Fat)

250 ml

Soy Sauce

1 tablespoon(s)


  1. Put the potatoes in a large pan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and cook for 8 minutes or until tender, adding the beans for the last 2 minutes of cooking. Meanwhile, put the eggs in a separate pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil, then cook for 8 minutes. Drain the potatoes, beans and eggs, and set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, make the satay sauce. Heat the oil in a small pan over a medium-low heat. Add the spring onions, garlic and ginger, then cook for 2 minutes or until soft and fragrant. Add the turmeric and cook, stirring, for about 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in the peanut butter until softened, then gradually add the coconut milk, stirring until combined. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer for 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Stir in the soy sauce. Thin with a splash of hot water if needed.
  4. Peel and halve the eggs and serve with the potatoes, beans, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumber and watercress. Drizzle over a little satay sauce, season with freshly ground black pepper and serve the rest of the sauce on the side.
