Gado gado
Gado gado is a classic Indonesian salad made with green beans, potatoes, carrots, cabbage and bean sprouts garnished with sliced boiled eggs and drizzled with a luscious peanut sauce. Gado gado is such a hearty and filling salad that it can easily be eaten as a complete meal.

2 cups Peanut Sauce
2 potatoes—peeled and cubed
2 carrots—julienned
20 green beans—ends trimmed
¼ head cauliflower—broken into small florets
2 cups shredded cabbage
2 cups bean sprouts
4 eggs—hard-boiled, shelled and cut into quarters

PREPARE the peanut sauce. WHILE the sauce simmers, bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. ADD the potatoes and cook for 3 minutes. ADD the carrots, green beans and cauliflower and boil for a further 4 minutes. ADD the cabbage and bean sprouts and boil for 2 minutes. DRAIN the vegetables and rinse under cold water to refresh. ARRANGE equal amounts of each vegetable on plates, garnish with egg quarters, and drizzle with peanut sauce to serve.

Tip: Allow the water to return to a rolling boil after adding each vegetable to ensure they are cooked according to the times allocated.
