Almond sauce with African sass :-)

The sassy sauce

This one is a quickie yummy treat and the best thing about it is that you can slather it on almost anything and it’ll make ’em taste yumm-yumm. You’ll need to roast some of the veggies which might take a bit ‘o’ time but believe me it is well worth it because the taste it gives to the sauce is second to none. All the roasting can be done in your frying pan if you don’t want the hassle of turning on your oven. I actually prefer it this way as the tomatoes get a slight burnt colour that translates into a ‘smokey-bbq-ewy’ taste. Go on, give it a go.

You’ll need:

  • 2 Roasted tomatoes
  • 1 Roasted garlic
  • 1 tsp Fresh Ginger
  • 2 cups ground almonds
  • More than a glug  of olive oil plus some water to form a paste
  • Salt and Pepper to your liking

and for the Sass:

  • 1 tsp Roasted peri-peri chillies;)

Put it all together in a blender and whizz away!! taste, season to your liking and et voila! Done.

The sassy sauce mixed in generously with some quinoa and zuchinni salad and drizzled over some pan-roasted Asparagus
