You’ve heard the judges on CHOPPED dictate it 1000s of times: A delicious sauce is what ties together a meal. It’s that addictive flavor that keeps us remembering OMG, I want that! AGAIN…ON EVERYTHING!
Unfortunately, often what tastes so good is not exactly good for us. Traditionally prepared sauces are typically the most calorie dense element on our plate given high fat + sugar content. O, then there’s the sodium! Bottled sauces much the same, but on top of that, loaded with additional preservatives to extend shelf life.
Tired of calorie bomb sauces + dressings? We are too!
WANT FLAVOR, WITHOUT THE GUILT?
You don’t have to choose between eating plain, bland, dry foods or colossally wrecking your macros + never reaching your health + fitness goals.
This quick + easy sauce is low in sodium, sugar + fat! It packs a ton of flavor + also a little funk thanks to the white miso. It elevates every protein. Delicious on steamed or roasted veggies, as well as salads.
PRO TIP! For SALAD DRESSING: Add a lil water by the tablespoon to “thin” sauce to the viscosity you seek.
One of our go-to Dinners is this BOWL OF CHAOS:
Steamed Broccoli / MIDDLE EASTERN ROASTED EGGPLANT / Roasted Butternut Squash / protein, such as Baked Salmon, Grilled Chicken or Filet Mignon with a drizzle of our Miso Sesame. Whitney also loves the combination of this tangy sauce with a tablespoon of our PISTACHIO PESTO. OMG! Asian + Italian? Yup, fusing cuisines again. Truthfully, the herbaceousness of basil + nuttiness of pistachios totally complements the funky salty miso, deep roasted sesame, + spicy gingery goodness! Try it!
So, if you want 3- 4 Tbsp, YES, you can! When you make sauces + dressings cleaner + healthier, you can enjoy a larger serving size! However, we used the standard 2 Tbsp serving size so you can compare exactly with other recipes +/or bottled sauces/dressings.
