I came across a recipe over at Peas and Thank you for a sauce that tastes delicious on just about anything from roasted vegetables to tofu. It’s a vegan recipe but I changed it up a bit and added cheese.
Ally’s Yum Sauce
adapted from Peas and Thank You
1 tablespoon EVOO
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1/3 water (or more for a less thick sauce)
1 can organic chickpeas
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or nutritional yeast for vegan version)
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar (or fresh lemon juice)
1 large clove garlic
3/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Combine all ingredients except EVOO in food processor. While food processor is running, drizzle in EVOO.
This sauce is delicious! You can use it for a ton of things like salad dressing or smear it on a Fourth of July burger for a kick. It shares a consistency and taste similar to hummus. You could also use it as a dip!
This sauce is so good that it made my cat insane (I’m talking opening a can of tuna level of insanity) which is odd because it contains no meat and very little cheese. I’ve never had a cat chase me around the house for my salad. Apparently, it crosses carnivore lines in its deliciousness or my cat is just insane.
