Any Season Dragon Sauce
A versatile flavour-bomb of a sauce, delicious on both plant and meat-based meals, in any season.
raw, unsalted cashews
black Chinese vinegar
or apple cider vinegar
Tamari soy sauce
pure maple syrup
flaky sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
In a small bowl, combine the cashews and hemp hearts. Pour hot water to cover and soak for 10 minutes.
In the meantime, combine the following ingredients in a blender: yeast, vinegar, soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic, salt and pepper. Add 2 Tablespoons of lukewarm water.
Drain the cashews and hemp hearts in a fine-mesh sieve, discarding the soaking liquid. Add them to the blender.
Blend the ingredients until smooth. You will need to stop the blender and scrape down the sides a few times.
With the blender running on low, drizzle in the olive oil. The mixture will thicken slightly. This is your dragon sauce!
Scrape the sauce into a pint jar. Use immediately or refrigerate for up to one week. Bring to room temperature before using.
