Ok, so if you’re a 90’s music nerd like myself, you caught onto the inspiration for the title. Nothing wrong with a nod to C & C Music Factory to get this post off to a good start.
But in all seriousness, the recipe I made is appropriately titled Mmmm Sauce. I’ve seen this delicious sauce floating around the blogosphere, but it originates from the blog, Peas and Thank You.
This sauce is great on pretty much anything. Well, I wouldn’t start dipping chocolate bars in it but you get the idea.
Mmmm Sauce (courtesy of Peas and Thank You)
- 1/4 c. canola oil (or oil of your choice)
- 1/4 c. almonds
- 1/3 c. water
- 1/4 c. chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 c. nutritional yeast
- 2 1/2 T. lemon juice
- 1 t. minced garlic
- 1/4 t. salt
- 3/4 t. curry powder
- 1/2 t. dried oregano
- 1/2 t. dried cilantro
In a high speed blender or food processor, combine oil, almonds, water and chickpeas. Blend until relatively smooth.
Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
This sauce was super simple to throw together. I love that!
Just delicious! Mine came out a little thick, but still tasted great!
I topped my mmmm sauce on a veggie wrap. Grilled peppers with tomatoes, lettuce, and feta all wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla. Mmmm.
I was hoping to do a lot more with it this week, but in the freezer it went. My tummy still hasn’t been feeling up to it’s usual self, so the bland, boring food continues.
