Fresh Coriander, Green Chilli and Lime Sauce

I know grown adults who eat the exact same meals, day in, day out, while loudly declaring plant-based lifestyles as boring!


Cest la vie!

I’m not about converting people or pushing them to change, as I believe all lasting change has to be stirred from the soul of the person who is finally fed up with themselves and really wants transform their life. Otherwise, it just doesn’t seem to stick.

So if you are one of those people who has been considering eating more plant-based meals, for reasons of health, environmental or animal welfare reasons (or all three!) then you have come to the right place!

Plant-based, whole food eating is delicious and varied.

It doesn’t have to be difficult. At all.

Condiments can lift an ordinary meal like lentils and rice into something really special.

Whether you are vegan or nay, store bought condiments and pickles can be filled with a bunch of “what-the-hell-is-butylated hydroxytoluene? “ kind of ingredients.

Making your own using whole ingredients takes no time at all and the results are phenomenally tasty and ridiculously economical.

We have a small stock of homemade condiments that I keep in the fridge, and make every week, that adds a delicious accent to our meals.

These easy condiments help bridge the divide that can sometimes exist between adult and kids meals.

We like things spicy, the kids, not so much! Each person can add as much, or as little as they like.

But my favourite by far would be this Fresh Coriander, Green Chilli and Lime Sauce. It is also one of the easiest condiments you will ever make!

This sauce is a bit of a riff of the South American chimichurri sauce. I put it on my Mexican inspired meals. My South East Asian inspired meals. My Middle Eastern Inspired meals! It is incredibly versatile, if perhaps not entirely authentic.

It is great just drizzled over tacos, poke bowls, salads and spread in sandwiches and wraps. I also love this stirred into mashed avocado for spicy, tasty guacamole or paired with Hommus for an extra kick.

I like a fine sauce, so I scrape down the sides and repeat blending until I get the texture I want. Put into a clean jar and will keep for a week in the fridge.
