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!


The Mysterious Case of the Missing B12

I learned something shocking recently. When I went vegan almond milk became a big part of my diet. I particularly loved Silk brand above the others because it was fortified with B12. And all non-meat eaters are quite aware of the fact that this is the one essential vitamin which cannot be obtained from non-meat sources other than supplements.

You need to either take a vitamin, use nurtional yeasts or get it from fortified foods. So Silk including it in their milk was convenient and appreciated.

Then I started having all these unusual cravings for chicken and beef which I didn't understand. Cause if I do get cravings it's usually for ice cream or muffins. But here I was dying to put some chicken in my mouth. And quite ashamed of it.

I didn't know it then, but I later discovered the problem. Turns out Silk stopped adding B12 to their non-dairy milk line-up. So I was drinking the milk thinking I was getting the 12 and in reality I was not. I could've compensated with nutri-yeast had I known. I just didn't.

Companies love to brag when they make some minor product improvement. But helll if they mention the fact that they shrunk the package size or removed a previously included feature. Not cool Silk. Not cool ast all.
