Esme’s Special Sauce

20 Feb

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about Esme’s Special Sauce from over at the PPK Forums. I make this sauce quite a lot because it’s super quick and so tasty. Excellent student fare indeed.

Esme's Special Sauce!

Esme’s Special Sauce

In a small bowl mix up the following in equal parts:
Tahini
Miso
Soy Sauce (I always use tamari because it’s my favourite thing ever)
Olive Oil
Nutritional Yeast or Mustard
Lemon Juice or Vinegar
A few cloves of Garlic.

Toss with hot, cooked pasta. That’s it, you’re done! It’s excellent with greens, I usually have it with steamed brocolli. My favourite thing about this sauce is how incredibly versatile it is and how I usually have the ingredients for it on hand. When I made it today I didn’t have any tahini or lemon so I used peanut butter and lime and it made quite the tasty peanut sauce.  I make it all the time when I’m short on time (or not, it’s so good).

    I made this the other day after seeing your post and we are hooked! I didn’t have broccoli so put some frozen peas on and everyone in the family loved it! My husband just asked me to make it again tonight. I used the leftover sauce to make baked tofu and it was yummy!
