Spicy Orange Sauce in A Stuffed Baked Potato


Vegan stuffed baked potato

Sauces are the spice of life and they taste really good on steamed broccoli, baked potatoes, green beans, cauliflower, veggie burgers, or just about anything. 

Make this oil-free, low-fat sauce in advance in a blender or NutriBullet and it will last in the refrigerator about  4 days. Then use it as needed.

It kind of looks like a vegan cheese sauce, but it has a taste all of its own- which is delicious.

I store my spicy orange sauce in a jar in the refrigerator

It's easy to make and is healthy and tasty. 

I used this delicious sauce to stuff a baked potato along with cooked broccoli and black bean sauce. 

A perfect meal with soup, additional broccoli, and a salad.

I stuffed my baked potato with broccoli, black bean sauce, and spicy orange sauce.

Both of those sauces are very low fat and oil-free.  

The black bean dip is an organic sauce I purchased already prepared from Whole Food Market (365 brand) and has zero fat and oil. We really like it. 




The spicy orange sauce is a homemade recipe that I have been making for the last few months. 

I use a cup of jarred organic salsa (I've gotten organic chunky salsa at Aldi's or Whole Foods market). The salsa's come in mild, medium, or hot. (oil-free). 

Recipe For Spicy Homemade Orange Sauce 


Ingredients: 

1/2 cup of steamed sliced carrots 
1/2 cup of steamed chopped potato (peeled)
1 cup of organic chunky salsa
1/3 cup of raw cashews (soaked for 2 hours or more) and drained
1/4 cup of nut milk + 2 tablespoons more if needed 

Directions:
Add the steamed carrots, steamed potatoes, salsa, drained cashews, and 1/4 cup of nut milk to a NutriBullet or blender. Whiz/blend until creamy, smooth, and the cashews are well blended. Store in an empty jar or glass container. Use as needed.

This sauce takes my vegetables to a whole new level! 

Notes: 
1. This low fat sauce meets gluten-free, oil-free, and vegan standards.
2. It is also kosher-parve 
3. If you like this recipe and would like more WFPBNO recipes, subscribe to my blog and get notified each time I publish. 
4. I steam 2 sliced carrots and 6 chopped potatoes together in the Instant Pot- ( sliced and chopped, add to Instant Pot and set for 6  minutes. Release steam manually according to manufacturers directions when done.
I make a large batch and use the carrots and potatoes for a side dish or I make mashed potatoes with carrots- both delicious.

    1. Marie- It is a simple sauce that is really tasty on anything. Make sure that your cashews are raw - toasted will not work..
