My darlings, welcome to August. The month of glorious fruit, too much sun, and a lot of eating outside. I’m including a couple of recipes for your August – or anytime – enjoyment. These are great as you can tailor the amount you use to your needs, and no one has to be concerned about over doing it. I want you to have healthy fun and enjoyable medication, and these will do it!
GREEN THAI PEANUT SAUCE
This is a fine sauce to have on hand; it can take sautéed vegetables and a little protein and rice to a whole new place. For about 2 cups, you’ll need:
½ C. natural peanut butter
2 whole jalapenos, seeded and chopped (leave in some seeds if you like it hot)
1 thumb-sized piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2-3 large cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 Tb. sugar
2 Tb. infused peanut oil (try 1 Tb infused oil and 1 Tb. plain for smaller dosage)
4 Tb. Thai fish sauce (nam pla)
6 Tb. fresh lime juice
Toss all of the above in a blender and blend till smooth. Store it in the fridge and use on almost everything; I love it with chicken skewers or rice noodle salad – yum!
Ketchup is such a ubiquitous condiment, why not enjoy it medicated? This is delicious and a fine way to get your medicine. For approx. 1 cup, you’ll need:
1 Tb. infused oil, or 6 droppers Green Revolution Avocado Oil Tincture 1:20
1 small can (6 oz.) tomato paste
2 Tb. apple cider vinegar
½ C. water
1Tb. brown sugar
1 tsp. each salt, garlic powder, onion powder
½ tsp anchovy paste (optional)
½ tsp. Chipotle powder (also optional, gives a more BBQ flavor)
Whisk all of the ingredients together in a medium saucepan and bring to a low boil. Immediately turn it down to the lowest simmer. Cover the pan and cook anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, just remember to keep the heat loooooooow. When it’s thickened allow to cool then store in the fridge – your hotdogs will say thanks!!
