If you’ve been following me on Bridget’s Healthy Kitchen Facebook page, then you would know that my sauce recipes play a big part when it comes to eating and living healthy. I would be lost without them as they are the base of so many of my wonderful recipes. My delicious Green Queen sauce is no exception. As she’s versatile and super healthy, she also sits proudly in my list of foundation recipes, alongside my ever-popular Sticky Sauce & Kombu Water.
My sauces are not only healthy, but they also give more flavour. My sauce recipes moisture, caramelise, tenderise, marinate and dress so many different dishes - the more of my sauces you know how to make, the more delicious and healthy your cooking will be.
The Green Queen is wonderfully flavoured, very creamy and is free from oil, gluten, sugar and dairy, which makes her royalty, hence the name. She’s perfect as a side for vegetables or meats, dressed through salads, smothered over wrap’s, and pretty much anywhere you need to add a guilt-free lift. There is also no cooking required!
