A month or so ago, I was given the opportunity to create some recipes with Kevin’s Natural Foods sauces. To be honest, I had never tried or even heard of them- however, now that I have: they will be part of my pantry staples from now on.
First of all, they are delicious, AND clean. As in, there’s no junk in there. It like a sauce I would make, only I don’t have to do all the work. (neither does my dishwasher)
One of the first sauces I tried was the cilantro lime sauce, which incorporates my two favorite flavors. This sauce pairs excellent with beef, so I added the sauce to ground sirloin, so each bite is filled with outstanding flavors.
I also incorporated the sauce into a condiment by mixing it with dairy free sour cream. Topped with fresh cilantro and placed on a low carb bun, it’s absolutely heavenly.
Now…. generally you’d have fries with this meal, but I opted for some fresh sliced beefsteak tomatoes, which of course could be added to the burger itself.
As for a side dish?
Consider the surf and turf… with a twist.
We have the turf covered with the steak burger, and now….
How does a warm bowl of hearts of palm noodles topped with a creamy lemongrass basil sauce sound?
The shrimp are first marinated in the Kevin’s Natural foods Lemongrass Basil sauce, then quickly sautéed ; and placed on a bed of Hearts Of Palm noodles. If you haven’t tried them yet- they are amazing. You can find them in cans in the pasta section of your local store.
I added the remaining sauce to 1 tablespoon tahini to create a creamy coat of velvety sauce for the “noodles”.
This was my “twist” on the classic surf and turf…
I’d highly recommend these sauces- right from the pouch or made into more. The possibilities are endless.
