Every once in a while, a new sauce walks into your life and changes everything. I went through this with Pesto, Cashew Cream, and my Lemon-Tahini dressing. Well, a few days ago, I found a new love; Romesco 😍. Continue reading “Romesco Sauce”

Ever heard of Dukkah? If not, I am about to change your life. Not even joking. This stuff is SO FREAKING GOOD, you will want to throw it on everything. Continue reading “Dukkah (Middle-Eastern Nut Seasoning)”
This dressing, like all dressings or sauces I make from scratch is (not to brag but…) good enough to eat by the spoon. If you are skeptical and have never used cashew as a dairy or egg substitute, don’t be. Cashews are the bomb. All you have to do is soak them for at least for hours (but preferably overnight), and blend them. Continue reading “Caesar Dressing (gluten-free & vegan)”
Pico is something I like to have a big batch of so I can use it with different recipes. It goes great on top of grilled chicken breast aka ‘pollo a la plancha’, it’s good on tacos, burritos,etc. Continue reading “Pico de Gallo”
If you are wondering why anyone would ever go through the trouble of making their own mayo…Let me answer your question with a question: Have you read the back of a mayo jar lately? I don’t know about you but eating anything containing hydrogenated vegetable oil such as soybean or canola is right at the top of my NO list. And as tempted as I am to get into the juicy details of why these oils are absolutely awful for your health AND for the environment, I am going to let you do your own research and save the lecture for another time. For now, you’re just going to have to take my word for it. Continue reading “Easy Paleo Mayo”

The Egyptian version, known in the Levant as mutabbal, is made of roasted, peeled, and mashed eggplant, blended with tahini, garlic salt, and lemon juice. Continue reading “Baba Ganoush”
Is there anything guacamole doesn’t go with? Asides from maybe chocolate? I have just been throwing it on everything lately. On my eggs in the morning, on a chicken breast….I even tried it with blackened salmon the other day and it was just amazing. Continue reading “Traditional Guacamole”
Chimichuri is the perfect sauce to serve with your steak, lamb or even pork. I served this with a rack of lamb and it was delicious! I made this one with mint as it pairs well with lamb but you can use any fresh herb of your choice. Basil, cilantro, oregano, just experiment and find your favourite!
This dressing can also be used as a chicken marinade and will make any salad or raw vegetable taste amazing!
