Out-of-the-Box Sauces from Lindsay Jones
When preparing crave-able summer foods or gearing up for a holiday party, it's easy to jazz up a meal into a fresh, healthy and flavorful treat for the entire family; all you need is a savory sauce to save the day. Food Flirt's Lindsay Jones says you can become a culinary superhero any time by blending outside the box for any occasion. For instance, blend flavor-packed raw sauces!
Blending makes raw sauces creamy, dreamy and truly delicious. Here are three of her favorite raw dishes, each with their own awesome sauce:
- Zucchini Noodles with Avocado Cashew Pesto Sauce
- Coconut Curry Peanut Dipping Sauce with Crudités
- Strawberry Vanilla Sauce over Banana "Nice Cream."
For easy storage and smaller batches, use the Oster® Ball® Personal Blender, which comes with two mason style Ball® jars and a storage cap. The 250 watts of power also ensures that your sauces will be silky smooth. For consistent results every time, Lindsay uses the Oster® Versa® Performance Blender, which offers pre-programmed settings so it can do the thinking for you. It's perfect for making large meals for big gatherings with its 8-cup BPA- free plastic, dishwasher-safe blender jar. Or try the Oster® Pro 1200 Blender, which has seven speeds, including three pre-programmed settings for the most common blender creations!
