The world needs sauces or else life would be extremely boring. One has to wonder though, what are sauces good on?
- Vegetables – raw, steamed, sauteed, roasted, grilled
- Protein of choice, eg beans or tofu
- Sandwiches ala moist-maker
- Pizza and pasta
- Licked naked on a spoon
- Anything your heart desires
If you did not pick 6 then perhaps you need to get schooled in the art of vegan saucery. And I’m not talking about how to become Gandalf or Marilyn Monroe – although I daresay you can add magic or seduce anyone with a truly flavorful sauce that will elevate your dish of choice from meh to amazing. Even if you did pick 6, let me ask you this – are the sauces you currently make as healthful as they are tastebud-tantalizing? ‘Cause you don’t want to induce a heart attack when you’re licking a spoonful of (insert favorite sauce here).
This Saturday, join me as we explore the world of plant-based Awesome Sauces and apply said sauces to a number of dishes. Why awesome? Well, see multiple choice test above + the fact that once you know these master recipes, you can apply them to a googolplex number of dishes.
Who says nacho cheese sauce is only good for nachos? It’s pretty awesome as the cheese to your Mac and Cheese or as a dip to get the little ones to eat their veggies. Hello, grilled cheese sandwich, anyone?
Sour cream – good in a burrito, good as a dip, good as salad dressing.
While gravy is always classically paired with mashed potatoes (well in this class, mashed root vegetables because I like living on the veggie edge), it’s great in a sandwich or even with tofu + caramelized onions. Or on a veggie burger!
Béchamel sauce we are adding to a lasagne but it also makes cannelloni or savory crepes great. I could go on and on…
And a coconut curry sauce? Where do I start? Where do I end? In this class we’re letting it dress up tofu, but it would be fab with steamed veg, as a sauce for noodles, thinned out with broth as a spicy flavorful soup…
All plant-based, all vegan, all cholesterol-free, all the time. No fakey fakes, only natural stuff.
Okay, I should let these sauces speak for themselves. Come to Awesome Sauces class this Saturday the 11th, 10am to 2pm. Learn some kitchen witchcraft and saucy seduction skills.
