gluten-free-butternut-squash-sauce-vegan-recipe

Hiya! Happy Monday.

There is something special about tossing a few ingredients into a high speed blender (or food processor) and watching them make the most fabulous hummus-like mixture that you can call a fancy SAUCE!

Yes, it’s that easy folks.

I’ve spent many, many, many years living out of a food processor. When I had colitis, all I did was puree everything in site so that I could digest it all…that’s when I learned how to create purees and sauces and soups that were blended to perfection and silky smooth. My NEW cookbook Eating Clean has a TON of fun sauces, soups and drizzles made from veggies and other fresh ingredients that you can add to salads, roasted veggies, proteins, gluten-free whole grains and even dip my grain-free crackers into!

So, I’m sharing a recipe with you that I created a few years ago and since this recipe didn’t make it into my cookbook (because I had way TOO many recipes already and actually had to cut 75 recipes and 100 pages from my manuscript) I thought I’d share it with you today.

But, let me just say this is just a taste…there are so many BETTER and more amazing sauces in my cookbook so you’ll have to see for yourself. And if you haven’t had a chance to check out my new cookbook, Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation and Reset Your Body!

Vegan and Paleo Butternut Squash Sauce

I love to whip up this sauce and serve on top of roasted veggies, gluten-free whole grain toast, my Grain-Free Sweet Potato Flatbread, Grain-Free Parsnip Foccacia or my Seedy Grain-Free Crackers (and p.s. there are a ton of grain-free crackers in my cookbook, too)!

This is a simple sauce that I love to serve with toast and crackers. When I was testing recipes for my cookbook I was playing in my kitchen trying to make a sauce from butternut squash and another fun dressing/sauce with red grapes- when I got the idea to create a ‘creamy’ sauce mixing both together with tender hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds for a boost of flavor, fiber and protein.

I like to serve this sauce warm but you can surely serve it at room temperature as a thick salad dressing over kale salads or any other salads with sturdy green leaves (since this sauce is a thicker consistency than thinner salad dressings).

I also love to dip my Grain-Free Sweet Potato Flatbread, Grain-Free Parsnip Foccacia and Seedy Grain-Free Crackers into this sauce as a dip. Anyway you choose to dig into this saucey mixture will float your boat.

I assure you.

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
