Summer for me is all about eating food that is as fresh and light as possible and supporting my body with nutrient dense cleansing foods so that even if I'm indulging a little more often I still feel my best! The past couple of weeks I have been doing a detox for my liver to help reset my system and to help balance my blood sugar and hormones. Greens and herbs are amazing for liver detoxification so at the beginning of the week I bought a ton of cilantro and parsley to incorporate into all of my meals but eating raw herbs over and over the same way gets old pretty reeking' quick let me tell ya. My inspiration for this recipe was that I wanted to make something that would support my liver detoxification while still being light and refreshing for the summer and obviously super delicious and I honestly think that I nailed it with this sauce!
This sauce is packed full of vitamins and nutrients and tastes amazing on basically everything, plus it's so easy to make you could probably do it in your sleep. Okay maybe not but that would be super impressive!
Detoxifyng never tasted so good.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
1 bunch of organic parsley
1 bunch of organic cilantro
3 tbsp hemp hearts
5 garlic cloves
2 limes - juiced
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1. Okay this is where it gets complicated.. (kidding) throw everything in your blender and turn it on medium-high speed (yup it's that easy)
2. Blend until everything is fully emulsified - it should be a creamy bright green colour.
3. Pour, dip, spread on anything and everything - my favourite ways to eat it are; dipping sweet potato fries and raw veggies into it, massaged onto kale, spread on crackers, the list goes on!
*Store in an airtight container or jar in the fridge for up to 7 days*
