Golden Glow Sauce

October 20, 2017

Here's a vibrant sauce that gets its colours from turmeric and mustard. Turmeric has been a buzz worthy ingredient for its potential anti-inflammatory properties, however its vibrant pigment and warming flavour is really what draw me in. 

This sauce has so many layers of flavour coming from the turmeric, mustard, tahini and miso paste: it's creamy, warming, and tangy all at the same time. I can't wait until you try it. 

This sauce truly is golden. Once you've made it, you'll be looking for other recipes to include it in. See below for some of my other popular Nourish Bowls that you can drizzle this sauce on. Happy drizzling!  


Psst: Find the recipe for the nourish bowl in these photos here. Or you can try it on:
