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.

Ingredients
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!


How To Make a Sandwich Without Meat or Cheese

How do you make a sandwich without meat? It's the million dollar question. It seems impossible, but it's really quite easy. It also tastes great, costs less, is better for you and doesn't require refrigeration.

Start with an awesome, hearty bread like rye or whole wheat. Bread is the most important ingredient in your sandwich. It's the foundation.


Upgrade from mayo to hummus. Creamy, rich and with boat loads more flavor. It tastes better and is better for you. Supermarket hummus now comes in a crazy assortment of flavors, brands and price ranges.


Add salty, succulent beans. Black beans have a great meat like texture and bite. They are a perfect meat substitute. They don't taste like meat.  They taste better. They feel like ground beef. They taste salty, starchy and a little bit sweet. Other great sandwich beans are kidney, red, lentils and pinto.




Don't forget to add your condiments. Nurtitional yeast paired with tart pickles creates a gooey cheese like amalgam that's hard to beat. I often prefer it to real cheese. Plus it's way more nutritious. Full of B12 and complete proteins.

Don't skimp on texture. Add some vibrant romaine and or raw onion for that crisp snap and assertive bite every sandwich needs to truly be great. . A sandwich just isn't complete without lettuce. And romaine is far superior to that old standby iceberg. Or try green cabbage in place of lettuce.
