Raw Sayur Urap Recipe

Raw Sayur Urap Recipe by Raw Food Bali

Bali, and the whole country of Indonesia for that matter, have given me so much, particularly its people, and I like to give back in whatever ways I can. One of the ways I’m trying to do this is to create healthy, Raw Food Recipes that they can relate to and make easily.

Sayur Urap is a traditional Javanese mixed vegetable dish composed of steamed long beans, shredded old coconut, mung bean sprouts, fresh chilis, and a delicious spicy paste. And there are a number of different varieties of course. It is one of my go-to meals when I travel in Indonesia. So I’ve made a raw version with a sauce rather than a paste (to break down the long beans a bit) that is easy to make, delicious and made with local ingredients. And super spicy – bule beware!
