When it rains in Asheville- "sauces for the light-hearted"

It's Raining in Asheville

OH GOOD! ...that means it's time to create the next entry into our "sauces for the light-hearted spirit in the kitchen" notebook.

It's easy. You don't even have to be in Asheville to do it!  Just take what you have on hand and mix it up with love.

First, we dashed out between rain pours to gather veggies from our garden. Then we stirred up our taste buds and imagination to create  what turned out to be a delicate yet flavorful concoction. (recipe is below)  . It was delicious drizzled over the organic vegetables. We may even save a place for it in our upcoming saucy  eBook MamaZone© Recipes.

Let us know how you like it...and stay tuned any time it rains in Asheville.

Hi janeAnne, It seems I can't make a sauce (or roux) without adding chopped onion. Otherwise, it sounds great.
