Asian Vegetables with Indonesian Tomato Sambal

Posted in Food on November 21, 2015

I’m all about getting a variety of greens in your diet and this dish is a great way to do this by adding some asian vegetables you may not be used to consuming as often as our “standard” greens. The tomato samba is a fragrant sauce that makes it come alive, I was inspired by all the wonderful sambal additions you get with your meals when in Bali. YUM!!


Asian Vegetables

  • A few bunches of Asian Vegetables. I like chinese broccoli, bok choy and chop sum
  • 4 Lime leaves chopped finely
  • Handful of Fried shallots
  • 3 Tablespoons of Tamari
  • Dash of Sesame Oil

Tomato SambalĀ 

  • 3 tomatos
  • Coconut oil
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • Half a cup of raw cashew nuts
  • 5 long red chillies seeded
  • Dash of tamari
  • Juice of 1/2 to 1 lime.

Vegan Tomato Sambal



  • Blend all the ingredients for the tomato sambal in the blender, minus the oil.
  • Heat coconut oil and then add the tomato salsa mix it in a deep fry pan and heat for 5 minutes. It will decrease in size.
  • Top with fried shallots.


  • Steam the vegetables for a few minutes then mix in a bowl with lime leaves, shallots, oil and tamari
  • Serve hot with rice and sambal and what ever else takes your fancy.
