One thing that sets the best restaurants apart from the mediocre ones is the quality and taste of their sauces! Combining flavors to create an interesting, delicious sauce is an art, and if you can learn to garnish your dishes this way, you can become quite the culinary hero! The nice thing about sauce when you’re feeding a family with children is that you can serve it separately, so the picky ones can avoid it! This Red Wine Reduction Sauce is delicious over protein, grains, pasta (I use quinoa/brown rice pasta), or vegetables. My family rarely eats red meat, but sometimes for a special occasion I serve it over steak, and sprinkle blue cheese on top…yummy!
This sauce is not only delicious, it’s also good for you! Mushrooms and onions are both full of fiber and antioxidants, and both are well known for boosting your immune system. Mushrooms have lots of vitamin D, which is a nutrient that many people are deficient in. They’re also high in protein, so you can easily use this sauce to complete a vegan meal. To go meatless, simply serve it over sweet potatoes or gluten free pasta (al dente noodles if you have diabetes, because it takes longer for your body to get those carbs into your blood stream).
Before we get to the recipe for the Red Wine Reduction Sauce, I want to invite you to join with others who are making healthy changes. I’d love to walk alongside you in your journey towards wholeness and health! Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full!” Freedom from food addictions is part of having a truly full life.
