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!
