Dijon Horseradish Sauce

I was just looking to create a sauce for roasted potatoes and broccoli to jazz them up a bit. Some kind of potato salad twist type thing.

I landed on a mustard based sauce since I had a fresh bottle of dijon. You know what they say, use what you have. That advice applies now more than ever, under current circumstances.

This is super easy to put together. Whisk together a few ingredients and you're all set. Keep those potatoes moist and delicious. A lighter, fresher variation on classic potato salad. And, of course, vegan.

2 tbls dijon mustard
2 tbls apple cider vinegar
2 tbls hot sauce
1 tbl horseradish
2 tsps salt
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsps turmeric
2 tbls olive oil

Whisk together all ingredients except olive oil.

Drizzle in the oil while whisking until a nice emulsion is formed.

I created this for roasted potatoes and broccoli, but this sauce has endless possibilities. It's tangy, spicy and a little bit creamy. Go nuts with it!

Raw Numbers

Meat consumption and religion are pretty similar I've discovered. From a very young age we are taught certain 'important' things. Most of us anyway. We are educated (brainwashed) to believe in our parents religion. We are also conditioned to believe we must eat meat. The two are not related as far as I know, but are both sad perpetuations of a time long since passed.

We do not need god. Nor do we need to eat meat. God is not real. God is the imagination of people too scared to face a vast and empty universe that doesn't care whether they live or die. God is the crutch of the weak. The afraid. Those who cannot face a life that doesn't offer some meaning. When the reality is not to our liking, we invent faith. Magic creatures in the sky to give us purpose.

In most cases people's parents taught them their religion. They were conditioned from their infancy to believe. The same is true for eating animals. We are trained to these wrong behaviors.

People don't need to eat meat. It once was natural, but no longer is. The consumption and cultivation of meat has been corrupted. Our grain is better spent feeding ourselves. For every 1 pound of corn we get 1/3 that amount in animal meat. We'd have way more food at a far lower cost if we didn't waste it all to feed animals we intend to slaughter.

even if you can't give up meat altogether. consider consuming less of it. if not for them, then for your children and grandchildren. we can't keep up this pace.
