Bitchin' Sauce

With a name like Bitchin' Sauce I just couldn't resist making it. And this sauce is worthy of its name!

The first time I made it I had three servings of salad just for the sake of being able to eat the sauce. It has a spicy-nutty flavour similar to hummus or tahini sauce. It makes an excellent salad dressing, vegetable dip or accompaniment to fish or chicken.

Both the nutritional yeast and the liquid aminos can be found at your local health food store or aisle - try Community Foods in Calgary. I did not add the Bragg Liquid Aminos because it is a soy product and not paleo-friendly. You could also add soy sauce instead.

From The Faux Martha, makes two cups

3/4 cup water
1/2 cup grapeseed oil
1/2 cup almonds
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons  Bragg Liquid Aminos, optional
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika

Place all of the ingredients into a blender. Blend for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth and creamy. Store in the refrigerator - if it lasts that long!
