Livening Up Bland Proteins with Some Pizzazz!

I’ve never been a big fan of dousing steak sauce on a beautiful grass-fed filet or covering an arugula and pear salad with a wad of gorgonzola.

I tend to like simple, local and fresh… all of which make for an opportunity to enjoy the real taste of the food you’re eating instead of masking an unsavory meal with some type of veil.

However, that is certainly not to say that there aren’t times when we’d all like something with a bit more flavor when we’ve grown tired of eating what feels like same old, same old.

One easy fix to this dilemma is to create a sauce out of herbs, spices and some good fat, like olive oil or avocado, and create a concoction that can be used as a sauce, dip or base for a stew!

Check out my recipe for one such easy to make recipe:  Spicy Cool Cilantro, Lime and Spinach Sauce.  

While a vitamix is handy, you can also use a mini prep food processor.

Ready in less than five minutes, boring food won’t stand a chance!
