Saucy Bases for Batch Cooking - Food-Nutrition-Health Seminar Series - Saucy Powerhouses


This week we are creating two savory sauces which we can use in our batch cooking recipes. This is an easy way to increase plant-points in every meal as well as get some special 'power' ingredients into our recipes (even if we do not necessarily like to eat them on their own) so that we can ensure we are batch cooking nutrient dense meals which we can then enjoy over a bed of greens with some whole grains.


THIS IS THE FOURTH POST FOR OUR SEMINAR ON SATURDAY 15 JUNE @10:00am PST

REGISTRATIONS CLOSE ON 14 JUNE AT 11:00PM PST






 

GUIDANCE FOR BOTH RECIPES BELOW

  • Cut all ingredients into small chunks (with the exception of the dehydrated mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and sun-dried tomatoes - I put those in whole)

  • REMEMBER TO CHOP AND STOP! (let those alliums breathe a bit!)

  • Place all ingredients in a large jar/glass container/blending appliance of choice

  • Cover with hot (not boiling!) water

  • Allow to soak for three hours

  • Blend in your 'strongest' blending appliance of preference (I run it twice on the 'sauce' setting to ensure that all the ingredients are fully blended and there are no remaining chunks)

  • Batch cook your favorite dish, and when all the ingredients (be they beans or vegetables) are cooked to your liking, turn off the heat

  • Once the pot stops boiling, add the 'base sauces' (you want to wait until it is no longer boiling to preserve the powerful antioxidants in the spices)

I used the Curry Base to batch cook a large pot of soybeans, sprouted lentils, tempeh, sweet potato and more alliums - onions and garlic and turmeric root.


I used the Tomato Base to batch cook a large pot of red beans, black beans, tempeh, carrot, whole shiitake mushrooms and more alliums again!
