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!


Meatless Challenge

I received an email from light life. This is a rare occurance. Apparently they've come out with a new line of refrigerated meatless burgers. Which is music to my ears and lips.

One is fortified with quinoia. Which is great, but I'm allergic. The other is black bean based. Which I love. Black beans are an aweseome meat replacer.

There are few things in life I love more than a great meantless burger. There's something so satisfying about making/comsuming a patty that defies the typcial dead animal protocol.

The root of it is the sandwich. It doesn't need to be a dead thing. It just needs to be delicious. ANd that's easily accomplished through other means.

The fact is, good veggie patties are trickier to create, but far more rewarding.

Any asshole can throw together a typical hamburger. Big whoop.

But it takes an attist to assemble a crave worthy veggie patty. And crave worthy they are with the right ingredients and topppings.

Meat is easy to make good. It takes a real chef to produce a meantless masterpiece.
