Hello all! I don’t know about you, but this quarantine has had me playing a game of Chopped everyday!
Luckily, I have a kitchen basic and two sauces to add an extra pop of flavor to your dishes!
Mayonnaise is such a kitchen staple that I always have in my refrigerator. It’s the base to many of my sauces. I smear it on fish before I top them with breadcrumbs and I even use it instead of butter when I grill bread on the stove. Mmmm….I love mayo….
Evie’s Yum sauce has an Asian flair that I spoon over veggies, chicken, and seafood—I even recently drizzled this over avocado toast and it was amazing!
The Chipole Lime Sauce is great drizzled over eggs, in tacos, with dipped quesadillas, on veggies, and pretty much anything I want to add a kick to. These two sauces are pretty much always in my fridge.
If you are looking for a flavor boost to one of your dishes, try one of these out!
Mayonnaise: 1 egg
2 tbs red wine vinegar
juice of half a lemon
1 cup light olive oil salt to taste
Evie’s Yum Sauce:
1 cup mayo
2 tbs coconut aminos
1 tbs coconut aminos teriyaki sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp chili garlic sauce
squeeze half of lime
salt and pepper to taste
Chipotle Lime Sauce:
1 cup mayo
1 small chili in adobo (or 1/2 of large chili- the more chili you use the spicier it will be. Start small and build to heat taste)

1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp chopped cilantro
juice of half a lime
To make the mayo: In a wide mouth container, crack egg and pour in vinegar and lemon juice. Pour in 1/2 cup of the light olive oil. Using an immersion blender, place the blade on top of the yolk. Turn it on without moving the blender. Slowing stream in the remaining oil. Salt to taste.
