Vegan Satay Bee Hoon (沙嗲米粉)

Yields: 2 Servings Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 5 Mins Cook Time: 10 Mins Total Time: 15 Mins

Satay bee hoon is a super easy hawker dish that makes use of the spicy peanut sauce served with satays. So, really, it should be called satay sauce bee hoon! I am not sure how this dish came about, but I guess it came from hawker stalls having a surplus of their satay sauce and thinking up innovative ways to use it up.

The main component of this vegan satay bee hoon is the spicy peanut sauce. So, I highly recommend that you make your own from this Spicy Peanut Satay Sauce From Scratch recipe. Once you’ve got the sauce, this dish really only takes 10 minutes to make.

The non-vegan version of the dish usually comes with whatever the hawker stall decides. It could be tau pok (beancurd puffs), kangkong, cuttlefish, prawns, or sliced pieces of vegan protein. I used tofu, sliced vegan protein, and cai xin.

Vegan satay bee hoon is honestly one of the most ugly-delicious dishes I’ve ever had!

  • Soak the dried bee hoon in warm water for about half an hour until softened. Bring some water to a gentle boil with the kaffir lime leaves and cook the bee hoon, about 2-3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • If your peanut sauce has been in the fridge, heat it up over low heat until warm through.
  • Fry your tofu or vegan fish cake until golden on all four sides, then slice. Poach or panfry some vegan protein slices. Blanch some green vegetables. These are all your toppings!
  • Assemble! Plate the bee hoon. Cover the bee hoon generously with the peanut sauce, then add the toppings. Garnish with some sliced chillies.
