YUM

Looking for something healthy, filling and good for you? This is one of the tastiest healthy recipes I've ever found. Yum sauce is a fabulous, nutritional meal that offers gobs of protein without containing meat. I made this for my grandson for dinner. When he saw all the vegetables and the sauce he said, "Yuck!" But then I put a little on his rice and he decided it was delicious and wanted seconds. Great recipe, I plan on taking it to school for lunch for the next week or so.

Recipe
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
1/2 cup cooked  and drained garbonzo beats
1/3 cup cooked  and drained soy beans
4 cloves chopped garlic
In a blender, combine the above ingredients and blend until it becomes a smooth paste.
Add
1/2 cup nutritional yeast (this can be purchased from a health food store, it is NOT yeast)
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons ponzu seasoning or soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 tsp ascorbic acid
Blend until all of the above is smooth.
Serve over brown rice and top with as many different vegetable toppings as you wish. This recipe makes 2 1/2 cups and will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.
