Recipe: Creamy Almond Sauce

by Darlene on January 26, 2008

This is a multi-purpose, great tasting and easy to make sauce. You can put it on , , quinoa cakes, sweet potato pancakes or anything else that needs a sauce or gravy.

This creamy almond sauce recipe is simple, with shallots or onions, almond milk and raw almonds. That’s it. Pure nutrition without the calories, oil or saturated fat in traditional gravies.

Creamy Almond Sauce

1/4 cup raw almonds
1 Tbsp minced shallots
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

Place the almonds and shallots in a blender or food processor and grind into a paste. Add the almond milk, salt and pepper to taste and blend until smooth.

Transfer to a small saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring until just hot. If you want it a bit thicker just cook a little longer.

A great way to make a new choice that is both healthy AND great tasting, instead of a choosing a fat laden gravy.

Make a double batch and store it in an old pickle jar.
