Gado Gado- an easy grain-free lunch option

My first international trip while on a healing protocol was to Bali. If you have been following my blog since the beginning, you will know that I got food poisoning on this trip, but before that happened I was actually really enjoying the food there.

My go-to meal during this trip was called gado gado. It’s a super simple dish of boiled veggies, eggs, tofu and a peanut dressing. I don’t eat soy, so I shared the tofu with my travel partner, but I was able to eat everything else. After returning from the trip and recovering from food poisoning, I started making my own version of gado gado for a quick paleo-friendly lunch and/or snack.

The veggie options for this are endless and the peanut dressing is super easy to throw together.

Gado Gado- an easy grain-free lunch option


  • veggies of choice
  • hard boiled eggs
  • peanut butter (additive-free)
  • coconut milk
  • optional flavors/spices: lime juice, chili flakes, black pepper, sea salt, etc.


  1. Hard boil eggs and boil veggies of choice until soft
  2. Make the peanut dressing by combining 1 part peanut butter with 2 parts coconut milk in a small sauce pan over low heat. Adjust to suit the amount of sauce you want.
  3. Taste the sauce and add any flavors/ spices you desire/can tolerate.
  4. Combine in a bowl and enjoy.
