How to Make Dijon Mustard Sauce

I think I told you a few posts back that I'm obsessed with Dijon mustard. I've been dipping my potatoes and spring rolls into it and also using it as a sauce for pasta and a dressing for salads. It's super low calorie and very savory. I made rice noodles and veggies for dinner two nights ago so I want to share my sauce recipe with you now.

I'm trying to take better photos, ones that will be more eye catching. I use my phone to take all food photos and I use an app called line camera that takes higher quality photos. Right now I'm playing with backgrounds and figuring out if inside or outside pictures are working best. I don't have great outside space since I live in New York City and only have a fire escape to take outside photos on :) Follow me on instagram and let me know what you think of the photos.

Dijon mustard sauce:
2 tbsp of Dijon mustard
1 tbsp of filtered water
2 cloves of fresh garlic
1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice

Blend everything in your food processor and pour onto your food. I use just plain Dijon mustard to dip my potatoes in. You can mix in some pepper and lemon juice to spice it up.
Thai rice noodles are my favorite noodles to make, they are light and completely yummy. You can buy them in any Asian specialty store or health food store.

I steamed kale, spinach and sweet potatoes for this recipe. Buy a steamer if you don't have one, it takes the pressure off you if you're trying to avoid cooking with oil. The steaming cooks your veggies and brings out their taste. After I steam kale, it's bright green and I can just enjoy it plain, right out of the steamer. Steaming is awesome, it helps you eat low calorie and takes 7 minutes tops. You will need to test your potatoes with a fork to see if they are done but even they don't take long in a steamer. Place a lid over your steamer to speed up the cooking process.
What is your favorite food to make in your steamer?

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
