VEGAN GREEN GODDESS SAUCE RECIPE IN COLLABORATION WITH GEM® AVOCADO

VEGAN GREEN GODDESS SAUCE RECIPE IN COLLABORATION WITH GEM® AVOCADO

For me the best recipes are easy, vegan, quick and SO good, you can’t help but make them again and again and again! Today’s vegan green goddess sauce recipe, which I’ve developed in collaboration with GEM® Avocado, fits this criteria perfectly. It’s the kinda, throw-it-together-last-minute-sauce that ALWAYS comes out tasting delicious, even if you get a few of the measurements wrong, swap one herb for another, or add some extra pepper for good measure. It’s not precious or precise, though I’ve written it down in the best version that I know so that you can make the green goddess sauce, tinker with it and then make it even better ;).

As an avid home cook and a food photographer everything starts with great food and a great work surface. If you think of it from the home cook's perspective if makes sense, right? Your ingredients have got to be right to create the dish you crave, but you also need a reliable, sturdy worksurface that makes the preparation process smooth and easy.

As a food photographer those two thing matter just as much - it's hard to shoot beautiful images if the food doesn't look right. And as for the worksurface it is ALWAYS a major consideration when I think about the mood and feel of a food photography image. It's the foundation from which I build my scene and tell my story. In fact if you read this blog post, this one and this one you'll know how incredibly important surfaces are in food photography and food styling.

In case it's not blatantly obvious I LOVE being social. You know, chatting, hanging out and chilling with friends, having a laugh or two and nibbling on some delicious vegan food in the process. Sharing experiences like these really help me get through the long, dark days and nights in January. And having pottery pieces that are both functional and pretty go a long way in making these kind of evenings with friends fun and stress-free.

As I mentioned in last week's blog post, I'll be sharing some quick and easy vegan recipes on the blog between now and the end of the year just cuz we're all SO busy in the run up to Christmas and the last thing we need is to be stuck in the kitchen, am I right?!

My blog is and will always be a place where I share plant-based recipes I believe in. It will always be a space where I tell you about fruits and vegetables that taste the bomb. That's because I value YOU and am honoured you've chosen to visit and read my blog. Hence if I do a sponsored blog post like the one I'm writing today for the brand new Metis® fruit, please know I've tried and tested the goodies (together with my rather fussy 7-year-old who LOVED them and my man, who ate 3 in one go!) and can whole heartedly recommend Metis® as well as this healthy Metis® geen smoothie recipe ;).
