Anti-inflammatory Herb Sauce

November 11, 2016

 

 

 

Lately I've been making lots of herb sauces from our garden, since we have lots of thai basil, rosemary, parsley and cilantro. Fresh herbs are loaded with antioxidants and phytochemicals that reduce inflammation and prevent disease. Many culinary herbs like oregano and parsley actually contain anti-microbial compounds and facilitate the body's natural detoxification process. I love that I can get anti-inflammation, medicinal properties and delicious flavor by making a different version of this sauce each week. Some of my favorite combinations are parsley lime pistachio, oregano rosemary hazelnut, and basil mint walnut. Enjoy using this sauce on grains, roasted veggies, steamed veggies, quinoa pasta, wild caught fish, sandwiches, veggie burgers, wraps and even salads.
