All Purpose Nut/Seed Sauce

This sauce is great for grain bowls, sandwiches and wraps. It refrigerates well and is great on all kinds of dishes, particularly those ‘clean out the fridge and make a bowl/sammich’ kinds. See bottom of this page for specific recipes.

Heat a bit of oil in sauce pan:

Simmer in a little oil: 

  • 1/2 onion 
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 TBSP seasoning*

Meanwhile in a blender or magic bullet: 

  • 2 T braggs or strong broth
  • 1/3 c nuts/seeds *
  • 1 T maple syrup /agave/ sugar
  • 1/3 c stock
  • 1/4 c canola

When completely blended, add to onion mix (which should be translucent, just beginning to brown and super fragrant), and stir:

  • 1/4 c nooch (nutritional yeast)
  • 1/4 c vinegar or lemon or combination*
  • 1/4 raw hemp or other very small or crushed nuts (if desired)
  • 1 T leafy herb*

Once you add this, it should be nice and gold from the nooch:

Variations

Ways to Use it

I’ve had this on hippie grain bowls, on sandwiches and as the base to a wrap. Depending on what you put it on you can really mix it up and not feel like you are eating the same. friggen. thing. every work day but keep that easy meal prep feel.

Today, I had the Easy Hippie version on a multi grain ciabatta bun, topped with cucumber, red pepper, onion, and lettuce. If you were looking for more protein, you could add some slices of tofu/tempeh, faux meat or extra hemp.
