Sauces: Homemade

As I cleared out fridge of any bought sauces I wanted to make some of my own I haven’t tried before. I also made another batch of the mint sauce I made last year.

My Creamy Fennel Mustard Recipe is Soo Good! Great for BBQ  with Sausages/Steak/Chicken or even Fish or when you want a salad dressing that’s not the normal mayo. No cream involved. Definitely making this one again.

My Basil Pesto Recipe worked out rather well. I don’t add parmesan to mine but a lot of recipes for basil pesto do include it so it is up to the individual taste. I personally don’t think it needs it.

The Chimichurri Recipe from Coles free magazine. Had this one with Steak. Neither hubby nor I liked it.

My Mint Sauce Recipe will be a favourite.

Place all ingredients in blender except for the oil.  Put lid on turn to 1st setting or pulse and *tip: drizzle in the oil a little bit at a time. When mix comes together its enough oil. Serve with either chicken, steak, fish, pasta, or roast vegetables or crudités
