I’m just going to be honest here. This recipe is my Paleo-ized version of the famous San Diego Bitchin’ Sauce. It’s amazing and is sold at all of my favorite farmer’s markets in San Diego. Which speaking of San Diego, I’ll be home in less than 3 weeks now! And then I’ll officially be a second year graduate student. That. Feels. So. Good. Let me tell you, the sweet Lord is GOOD. This year has been all kinds of crazy and yet full of so many blessings.
Anyway. This Bitchin’ Sauce is pretty tasty business, but it’s not 100% paleo and I don’t always live in San Diego. Sometimes I have to make my paleo way in Abilene, Texas.
You can dip your veggies in this sauce. Eat it on your eggs. Toss roasted cauliflower in it. Or just eat it by the spoonful. Not that I’ve done that…but maybe you could? That’s a lie. I totally do. It’s also a really good dip for some home made sweet potato wedges. The best part…it’s super easy and quick to make! The ingredients might not all be something you just have on hand, but you’ll want to so that you can make this again and again and again!
Sassy Sauce (Original)
- Place all dry ingredients (almonds, spices and nutritional yeast) in a food processor. Pulse until the almonds are well chopped and blend/puree until you have a “meal” consistency.
- Combine all the wet ingredients in a bowl and add about a 1/3 of the mixture at a time. Processing until smooth between each addition.
- Store in the refrigerator. The sauce may separate or thicken. Stir and it’s as good as new.
*It should last 3-4 weeks in the fridge thanks to the lemon juice, but mine never sticks around that long!
In other grad school news, I’ve officially completed 100 clinical hours (300 to go!) and received my placement for next year! I’ll be at an elementary school with a phenomenal speech pathologist. I came into grad school thinking I would never work in schools…I saw a lot in my two years working in special education that made me think that. But the truth is I love that population. This SLP that I’ll be working with spends a lot of her day with nonverbal children with autism. Those little ones I spent two years with stole my heart and I’m excited to work with them from the speech side!
Stay tuned for a giveaway from The Sox Box next week!
