There’s  nothing worse than realizing you have a refrigerator door full of sauces that you can’t use because they’re packed full of gluten, sugar, or just a ton of other shit you can’t pronounce. So here are some recipes for commonly used sauced that you can make at home. I’ll continue to post more as I make them. Enjoy!

Worcestershire sauce

Ingredients (makes 2/3 C)

  • 1/2 C apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp mustard powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground pepper

Ingredients

  • 1 egg (room temp)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice (room temp)
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 C plus 1 C light-tasting olive oil (not extra virgin!)

Directions

  1. Place the egg and lemon juice in a blender or food processor.
  2. Add the dry mustard, salt, and 1/4 C of oil.
  3. Blend until well mixed, about 20-30 seconds.
  4. Sloooooooooowly slowly slowly drizzle the remaining cup of oil into the blender/processor. This will take about 3 minutes, so be patient! Do NOT just dump the rest of the oil in or it will not emulsify, trust me!
