Basic Homemade Condiments + Other Updates


Good afternoon. A friend sent me a vegan mayo recipe, so here are three simple recipes for mayo, mustard, and ketchup. For replacing cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, you may want to try cardamom, coriander, and/or ginger. The tastes are different and distinct, but you may find them to be satisfying. I have been putting coriander in my appleasuce and apple juice. Instead of vinegar in recipes, I just use lemon juice. No salad dressing? Here’s an old recipe for Italian dressing. I usually just squeeze or squirt some lemon juice on my salad, and may or may not add salt. Want an Asian flavor for your stir-fry, lo mein/chow mein, vegetables, ramen, or tofu? Try this sesame ginger sauce. You can also try simply adding a little salt, sesame oil, lemon juice, garlic powder, ginger, or any combination of those flavors and some sesame seeds to your recipes instead of vinegar and sugar laced prepared sauces. I have found those options to be satisfying in the past. Want spicy? Try adding some ground ginger or garlic powder or granulated garlic after the cooking, before eating. The spicy seems to cook out of it, but if you eat it raw, then your taste buds might scream.

I’ve been posting some new recipes here and there, and updating the hummus pizza recipe post as I have been eating different versions of this recipe. It’s delicious and filling.

Some of the links to recipes that have been removed are still up, but they are broken links (since they no longer link to the recipes). I hope to fix that later.
