Throw it all in the blender or Vitamix and process on high until smooth and creamy. Enjoy!

Spinach Sauce

I find myself adding this to dishes when I want to add some fresh greens to my meal but it’s too unbalancing to vata to add a cold raw salad. Add a spoon or two on a baked potato, on top of a bowl of kitchari, or to balance out a heavy bean burrito.

You can adjust all the ingredients to taste, or get creative and add some of your own favorite greens.

I bunch/bag of baby spinach

1/2 b unch parsley or cilantro

2-3 teaspoons light, mellow miso

1/2 small yellow onion

Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s to taste

Fresh ground pepper to taste

Fresh grated turmeric to taste

Steam the spinach and parsley until just tender, only a minute or two. Place the greens and remaining ingredients in a blender, (best if you have a vita-mix for creating the smoothest texture. You can learn more about vita-mix here http://snipurl.com/uysho ). Blend on high until smooth, adding water if necessary. If using the vita-mix high speed will heat the sauce so that it is warm and ready to serve. In a regular blender you may have to warm the sauce before serving. Heat on low for the shortest amount of time to prevent over cooking and losing the nutrients.
