BARBARA'S KALE SAUCE
====================

Ingredients:
------------
1 1/2 cup soymilk (preferably plain, but vanilla will do)
4-6 tblsp nutritional yeast
1/2-1 tblsp margerine (totally optional - there's no difference in
taste I have found, and who needs the added fat?)
1/2 tsp each: dill, thyme, basil
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper (opt)
3 tsp flour (whole wheat will do; this is a rough amount. Use to
thicken, so the amount varies considerably on how you like it)
4 medium/large leaves of kale

Instructions:
-------------
Add everything except the kale and flour to a saucepan and stir. Steam
kale (or if you're making pasta, cook it in the boiling water before you
add the pasta) for about 1-3 minutes, depending on how crunchy you like
it. Remove and cut up in small pieces. Add to the sauce. Heat the
sauce, and when it is fairly warm, start adding flour slowly, so that it
doesn't clump. Whisk or stir constantly! When you have enough flour
added, remove from heat, or serve immediately. I've found that this
tends to burn quickly if left on a warm burner.

BECHAMEL SAUCE
==============

Ingredients:
------------
2 tblsp of butter
1-3 tblsp of flour
1/2-3/4 cup of chicken broth ( I use this for less calories than cream;
ya right; like it matters for this recipe!)

Instructions:
-------------
Melt butter in a small sauce pan. Stir in enough flour that the mixture
starts to form a ball. Gradually stir in broth until you get a sauce
that is thickened but pourable.

BREAD SAUCE
===========

Ingredients:
------------
3 3/4 cups of milk
1/2 loaf of day old white bread
2 onions
12 cloves
2 ounces of butter
Salt and Pepper

Instructions:
-------------
Cut the crusts off the bread and reduce to crumbs in a food processor.
Try to use fresh baked bread, since, in my experience, American
store-bought white bread is pretty nasty. Peel the onions and stick 6
cloves in each. Put them in a saucepan with the milk and heat gently
until a skin forms on the milk.

Take the milk and onions off the heat and let them sit for 1-2 hours to
let the flavours of the onion and cloves infuse. Then add the crumbs
and heat gently for about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Then stir in the butter. The sauce should not be too stiff; if it is,
add more milk.

Remove the onions and cloves and serve the sauce as an accompaniment to
chicken, turkey, pheasant, &c. Just a dab on each bite compliments the
flavour of the roast wonderfully.

CHEESE SAUCE
============

Ingredients:
------------
1/2 pt soya milk,
2 level tblsp cornflour

OR cream cheese, this gives a very interesting flavour
lots of grated nutmeg

CHOCOLATE POULTRY SAUCE
=======================
(Makes 3 1/2 cups)

Ingredients:
------------
2 tblsp peanut oil
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1 medium yellow onion, peeled & chopped
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup cocktail sauce
2 cloves garlic, peeled & minced
1/2 tsp Tabasco or more to taste
1 green sweet bell pepper cored & chopped
2 cups chicken stock or broth (canned or fresh)
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup whole canned tomatoes
2 squares semisweet baking chocolate (1 oz.)
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions:
-------------
Heat a large saucepan and add the oil. Saute the onions and garlic
until clear. Add the peper, raisins, and tomatoes and cook for 10
minutes. Remove from the stove and puree in your food processor or
blender. Return to the pan and add remaining ingredients, except the
chocolate. Simmer for 10 minutes and then add the chocolate, stirring
until it melts.

This is to be used over any kind of cooked poultry. For instance, left
over fried chicken takes on a new life when you simmer the chicken for a
few minutes in this sauce. Or turkey meat, cooked, has an entirely
different flavour when you warm it with this sauce.

CREAMY GARLIC SAUCE
===================
(Makes 3 cups)

1 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
2 tblsp arrowroot powder
3 cloves garlic, diced

EASY MUSHROOM GRAVY
===================

Ingredients:
------------
About 1 pound of mushrooms (white and shitake)
Several cups of water, or as needed
Whole wheat flour to thicken
Soy sauce to taste
1/2 - 1 tsp salt
Herbs of your choice (I usually use basil, marjoram, thyme)

Instructions:
-------------
Chop mushrooms small or large, depending on your taste. Shitake
mushrooms give this a really meaty quality, so if possible use as many
as possible (about half and half). In a large pan add a couple
tablespoons of water and the mushrooms, and heat on medium. Let the
mushrooms cook for about 8 or so minutes until most of the water has
cooked out. Add herbs. Slowly add flour and water, stirring constantly
as to avoid lumps. When it has become the consistency you like, add
salt and soy sauce. Pepper is optional.

This tastes great over plain brown rice.

FAST SPICY PEANUT SAUCE
=======================

Ingredients:
------------
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1 Tbsp. Asian chili sauce (adjust to taste)
1/4 cup unsalted peanuts, chopped

Instructions:
-------------
Place the hoisin sauce (purchased from the Asian section of your favrite
grocery-- it is dark red, thick, with a molasses-like taste) in a small
shallow bowl. Spoon the chili sauce into the hoisin sauce (make circles
or teardrops or other shapes if you're feeling arty) Sprinkle the
chopped peanutes on top. Dip and enjoy!! --Lynn Schaeffer

GRAVLAKS-SAUS (1)
=================

Ingredients:
------------
2 tsp mustard
2 tsp sugar
4 tsp vinegar (5%)
2 decilitre soya oil
1 decilitre dill
1 egg yolk

Instructions:
-------------
Mix mustard, sugar and vinegar. Add oil carefully using a mixer/food
processor. Mix in yolk. Add the dill.

Personally I find this sauce both too mild and too creamy.

Note:
-----
The mustard in a *real* gravlakssaus should of course be Swedish or
Norwegian!

GRAVLAKS-SAUS (2)
=================

Ingredients:
------------
3 tsp wine vinegar
2-3 tsp sugar

GREEN PEPPERCORN SAUCE
======================
(should make about 1 cup of sauce)

Ingredients:
------------
1 can beef broth
1/4 cup sherry
4 shallots, finely chopped
1/3 cup heavy cream
2-3 tblsp green peppercorns (they come in a jar, marinated in liquid)
black pepper

Instructions:
-------------
Saute the shallots in a small amount of butter over medium heat
until soft. Add broth and sherry, increase heat to high and
cook unti reduced to about 1/2 cup. Add remaining ingredients,
mashing some of the peppercorns to emit flavor, and server over
desired meat.

Again, this is a really rough recollection...I haven't made this in a
long time, so I'm not too sure that I have all the ingredients. You
could play with it and add things to your own liking.

This sauce is wonderful with pork tenderloin slices, and would be good
with prime rib as well.

LEMON AND TOMATO SAUCE
======================
(Enough for two)

Ingredients:
------------
1 onion sliced in thin rings
1/2 tblsp oil of your choice
3 tblsp tomato ketchup (maybe more, I just squirt it in)
juice of one lemon
rind of one lemon
pinch of chilli powder (optional)

Instructions:
-------------
Fry the onion till soft. Add the everything else and stir it up.
Simmer for about five minutes until everything is blended and the sauce
thick. You might need to add more water to thin it down. If it's too
thin add more ketchup.

Note:
-----
This sauce tastes wonderful with Quorn (mycoprotein).

Don't be put off the ketchup, nobody would guess you used it to make the
sauce. This is one of the recipes I use for entertaining and is very
popular.

little paprika). let it simmer till the sauce thinkens (This takes
about 5-10 min). If the sauce gets too think too quickly, add more

PEANUT SAUCE
============

Ingredients:
------------
vegetable oil for deep-frying
100 g (4 oz) whole shelled peanuts
1 slice terasi
2 shallots, peeled and chopped
1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped
1/2 tsp chilli powder or sambal ulek
1/2 tsp brown sugar
400 ml (14 fl oz) water
25 g (1 oz) creamed coconut (optional)
1 tblsp lemon juice
salt

Instructions:
-------------
Heat the oil in a wok or deep frying pan (deep-fat fryer) and fry the
peanuts for 5 to 6 minutes. Drain thoroughly on kitchen paper towels.
Allow to cool, then work to a fine powder in an electric grinder, or
with a pestle and mortar.

Put the terasi, shallots and garlic, if using, in a cobek or mortar.
Pound to a very smooth paste, then add a little salt. Heat 1 tablespoon
vegetable oil in a pan, add the paste and fry for 1 minute, stirring
constantly. Add the chili powder or sambal ulek, sugar and water, bring
to the boil, then add the ground peanuts. Stir well, then simmer until
thick, stirring occasionally. Add the creamed coconut (santen) if
using, and stir until dissolved. Keep hot.

This really isn't as time-consuming as it sounds, providing you use
roasted peanuts (avoiding the deep-frying step), and get your terasi,
sambal ulek and coconut milk from the nearest Asian market. I must have
had a lot of time on my hands the first time I made this, as I decided
to eschew the grinder and use a mortar and pestle.

Notes:
------

SAMBAL ULEK [Indonesia] Used as an accompaniment and in cooking.
Made by crushing fresh red chillis with a little salt: Remove the
seeds from the chillis, chop finely, then crush with salt using a
pestle and mortar. Three chillis will make about 1 tablespoon
sambal ulek. also available redy-prepared in small jars from
Oriental stores and some delicatessens.

TERASI [Malaysia] Also known as balachan/blacan (Malaysia), kapi
(Thailand) and ngapi (Burma). A kind of pungent shrimp paste, used
in very small quantities. Depending on the recipe in which it is
used, it can be crushed with spices to make a paste which is then
sauteed in oil. Alternatively, it may be grilled (broiled) or
fried first, then added to other ingredients.
