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.

Nutrition for Easy & Healthy Sauces

Most people seem to be making a lot of sauces from scratch which really helps people eat cleaner!  All of these recipes are compliant as a Whole 30 Sauce and a Paleo Sauce option.  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. These Healthy Sauces are just perfect to incorporate into your daily intake because their ingredients are limited and are actually healthful; coconut milk & apple cider vinegar!

    I too am a huge fan of tahini, it’s the best stuff ever! I make mine with mint leaves, which a local falafel restaurant I used to frequent as a student did, so good! I also use lemon juice instead of ACV. My friend makes this fab one: but she fries up 1 onion with 1 garlic clove, and lets it cool. She then blends the oil/onion/garlic mixture with the juice of 1 lemon and stirs in tahini and seasons with salt and pepper to taste. It always tastes so good when she makes it, but I’ve never been able to get it right.
    Will have to give your version a try and love the idea of the coconut curry sauce as well.
