Easy & Healthy Five Minute Sauces
Fast & Easy SAUCE TIME!! We are HUGE fans of sauces in our family and if you are eating mostly meat and vegetables for dinners, it is so nice to have a sauce to drizzle over everything for extra flavor. This posts hits you with 2 of my favorite sauces to mix it up and they each only take one small bowl and about 5 minutes to throw together! First off – my love – TAHINI! If you follow me on instagram you know I adore this sauce. Yes, I said adore – it’s an intimate love we have! 🙂 The creaminess and nuttiness of the tahini mixes with apple cider vinegar for some punch, and then spices for flavor! Here is a graphic to wrap your head around this one:

Okay now for #2. This one makes my heart really happy. I made this a couple of weeks ago and now I have a big batch in the fridge just waiting to use on anything and everything! If you like Thai food or curries of any kind – this ones for you. Almond butter for the base – coconut milk to thin, and more spices! See a trend here? Base – thinner – spices. Three components to make any quick weeknight sauce! I was scared of curry for years because I don’t like spicy food and thought all curry was spicy! Silly Kelsey. Now I know the truth and I love adding curry powder in recipes as much as I can. Coconut just goes perfectly with the stuff. Here is another graphic for ya.
MO DRIZZLE FAAAAA SHIZZLE.

One way you can tell a sauce is a “healthy sauce” is if it has a limited amount of ingredients. Let say 6 ingredients or less. This can ensure there aren’t a bunch of unnecessary additives or preservatives added in that can be harmful to your overall health if eaten in excess.
