#21 FONDUE/BBQ SAUCES







So these are some sauces I made for new year's eve when my friends invited me over for fondue. I volunteered to make the sauces because I wanted to try some new things and I really enjoyed it, the beauty about them is that they're of course not just for fondue but for a BBQ or whatever else you like to have sauces with.

Fondue is a really great meal to have when having some friends over because everyone can take whatever they like and it is very communicative.
The sauces are one of the most important thing because they make everything a little bit more interesting, so I wanted to make sure there is something for everyone.

As I made these sauces for a party with about 10 people eating, I made quite a bit of sauce, you really never know how much you need. So I'll estimate the amount of ingredients you'll need for maybe 5 people. you can always make more then if you fancy it.

You can always play with the recipes and add some things or leave some out you don't like. You don't need to use these sauces with a fondue. tzatziki is great with any kind of grilled meat and all the rest are great for a BBQ too. it's always lovely to have something to give things a little more taste.





Tzatziki
1/2 Cucumber
1 glove of garlic
500 g greek yogurt
salt

put the yogurt in a bowl, grate the cucumberand crush 

the garlic and add to the yogurt. 
add some salt to taste.

ready to serve!


Hummus Parsley Sauce
300 g cooked chickpeas
3 tbsp water
1 handfull parsley
1/2 glove of garlic
lemon juice
salt

put the chickpeas and the water in a bowl
and puree them together. then add the parsley
and the garlic and puree again.
add some salt and lemon juice to taste.

enjoy!


Mango Mint Sauce
1 Mango
1 handfull of fresh mint
1 tbsp honey

peel the mango and puree it adding the mint
and the honey. you can add some salt
if you would like, I like it pure.

if you can find a really ripe mango you don't
need the honey. but I found you can barely
find one around here.
