Delectable Homemade “Yumm Sauce” Recipe

Delectable Homemade “Yumm Sauce” Recipe

Here in Oregon we have a restaurant chain called Cafe Yumm which promotes healthy, earth-friendly food. Their most popular menu item is essentially a glorified bowl of rice and beans, but with the addition of their secret “Yumm sauce,” it’s strangely addicting. The sauce itself is gluten-free and vegan, and a great addition to wraps, rice bowls, baked potatoes, soups, etc. There are many copy-cat homemade Yumm sauce recipes floating around on the web each with their own take on it, so feel free to play around! (and if you happen to stumble upon the secret ingredient, let me know!)

Step 3: You could go ahead and use the sauce at this point, or if you possess more patience than I do, place the sauce in the fridge for an hour and allow the flavors to meld and deepen.

Ta-da! Easy, right? And  the uses are endless: spread it on a wrap, dress a salad, add a dollop to your soup, sneak a spoonful straight into your mouth when no one is looking, whatever  your heart desires! My favorite way to eat this delicious sauce is still in the form of the original “Yumm bowl,” which is simply warm jasmine rice, black beans, chopped tomatoes, avocado, black olives and fresh cilantro. Give it a try and let me know how you use it!
