Parsley sauce

Ingredients for 3-4 servings

Approximately 1 cup of bouillon
2 1/4 cup of almond milk
Salt, pepper
1½ teaspoon corn starch
1 big bunch of parsley


Pour bouillon and 2/3 of the almond milk in a pot, and boil the mixture. Stir the last 1/3 of the almond milk with 1½ teaspoon corn starch. Put the mixture in the sauce and boil it. Let it simmer for a couple of minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Chop or cut the parsley finely, and turn it into the finished sauce.

Serve the parsley sauce to anything from bean rissoles to fish fillet.

Tips: Make the almond milk yourself: Pour 1 cup of almonds into a bowl with water, and leave it overnight. Next day, pour off the water, and mix the almonds with 1 cup of fresh water and a pinch of salt (like sea salt or Himalayan salt). "Massage" the mixture through a strainer using a dough scraper, and then perhaps through a thin cloth, e.g. a dishtowel. Add 1 cup of water, stir the mixture, and keep it cool.


Leave out the parsley, and use the sauce as a base sauce for various stews, e.g. with green beans or spring cabbage.
