Home-Made Ancho Steak Sauce

GLUTEN-FREE | DAIRY-FREE | DETOX-FRIENDLY


Making your own steak sauce from whole food ingredients is easy. If you're not a steak eater, serve it as a dipping sauce for grilled vegetables or brush a bit onto skewers of freshly grilled chicken, shrimp, or scallops. Freeze what you don't use within a few days and thaw it this winter to serve as a condiment with roasted meats.

Green Tea Affogato

GLUTEN-FREE | GRAIN-FREE



Traditional Italian affogato is a shot of espresso poured over ice cream, but I made mine with green tea. I used matcha, the antioxidant powerhouse, because it has more body and a brighter color than steeped green tea. In cold weather I use hot tea, but in hot weather I use room temperature tea so the ice cream doesn't melt too fast.
