MMM Sauce

in Recipe, Sauces/Dips

I’ve been eyeing this sauce for a while on Mama Pea’s website. She pretty much eats it on everything. The sauce is similar to hummus in texture and taste, but has a little more spice to it due to some curry powder, garlic and oregano. I tried it on lentils, on salad, with raw veggies, I even dipped pita chips in it. It’s versatile, what can I say.

I was so excited to try this sauce that I missed a few things… When I scanned through the recipe, I quickly looked through the ingredients and thought “Yup we have everything except the yeast.” So I went to the grocery store and bought three packets of yeast. In line at the store, I did think to myself “this is a little weird, yeast in a dressing, oh well.” I came home, printed my recipe, marched into the kitchen to get started and scanned through the ingredients list: “Chickpeas…check!” “Lemon…check!” “Nutritional yeast…not so much.” Apparently yeast and nutritional yeast are very different and in my rush to get started I hadn’t read through my ingredients thoroughly…we also didn’t have dried cilantro…both ingredients that the original recipe asked for. So I forged ahead and the sauce is DELICIOUS without either. My mother likes to tell me that when you make a  mistake in the kitchen it just means that you created a new recipe (words to live by!).


I spread it on my toast this morning… and I licked the spoon clean. Is it to clichey to say “mmmm?”

yummy i make a version of this pretty much every week- sometimes changing it up with peanut butter, tomatoes, adding different spices, the possibilities are endless!!!!

next time you gotta add nutritional yeast… it makes it super “cheezy” and even yummier! i use it a lot in salad dressings and hummus as well… scary to use at first, but its sooooooo good!
