Raw turmeric sauce / spread / dip

This raw turmeric sauce is made of zucchinis, ground sunflower seeds, and of course a lot of turmeric – the king of spices (more about turmeric). The sauce can be used for veggie rolls/pockets, as a spread/sauce for bread and pizza, or for Sunflower Seeds Crackers. It is a perfect dip for celery stalks, carrots, or other vegetables. Also great for zucchini noodles!

Yummy! If you are mostly cooking, then is a raw turmeric sauce a healthier alternative to cooked sauces; use it for lentils, and beans (a much healthier choice over processed food). Watch to let the cooked dishes cool down to 115ºF (46ºC) – so that you can hold it in your hand – before adding the raw turmeric sauce.

Through that, the raw ingredients keep their taste, enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
