The bounty of Fall is upon us (and in Colorado we are eating our veggies out of the gardens super fast before they freeze). I asked Kimberley Evans MS, RD to give us her favorite recipe for a plant based dip. (*these dips add more flavor PLUS they add more nutrition to the thousands of zucchini you may be eating now)!! FUN!
EASY PLANT BASED CONDIMENTS to make Veggies Taste GREAT!
My favorite way to support women on their health and wellness journey is through simple solutions – to maximize energy, health, and vitality. There are a few simple ways to do this that take the best of what nature has to offer and condense it into a brilliant and super addition to everyday eating. These are plant based condiments such as kale based pesto, cilantro and parsley based chimichurri, and my all time favorite miso-peanut-ginger sauce. These are great examples of simple ways to use the power of food to influence your health AND to add flavor and excitement to your plate.
Below is one on my favorite recipes for Miso Ginger Peanut Sauce. I make this is bulk and keep it in a mason jar in my refrigerator. It will keep for several weeks – miso gets better with age. This is my go to dip for steamed or roasted veggies, a sauce for a peanut pasta dish, a topping for a quinoa based lunch bowl, or on a piece of tofu, chicken or fish. I never get tired of this flavor and health boosting deliciousness.
