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!


Simple Guac

I'm not a big guacamole or avocado fan, but every once in the while it really hits the spot. I've never really read a guac recipe or even had a restaurant version. I may have had some wholly guacamole once. I'm not sure.

This guac recipe is just my personal preference. I think it tastes great. I use it mostly as a salad dressing, but I'm sure it's more versatile than that.

1 avocado mashed
1 lime, zested and juiced
3 cloves roasted garlic
1-2 chipotles and 1 tbl adobo sauce
1 jalapeno, flesh only
salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne, cumin

Mix it all up together. Chill for a while. Awesome.

I roasted my garlic on a charcoal grill. I didn't setup and run a charcoal grill just to roast garlic, I was grilling some ears of corn. If you're not grilling, you can roast your garlic in the oven or a skillet.

I don't give measurements for the spices since it's so personal. Add a bit, taste, decide if you want more.
