Hands down this is my Favorite sauce to top on proteins such as tofu, fish, chicken, pork, and beef! It takes 5 minutes to prepare and I always have some in my fridge for that last-minute dinner sauce. It’s also fabulous with steamed or roasted vegetables, potatoes, and much, much more. It’s a sauce for all occasions. TIP: You can use your fresh herbs that are starting to fade and wither so you don’t have to waste any OR you can use fresh herbs that you just bought. Use any herb you want or make a combo of 1 or more herbs together for a variation of flavors!
