Raw Sayur Urap Recipe

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!
