Orange-Turmeric Tahini Sauce - paleo, vegan, perfect for drizzling on just about anything to spruce it up! | TheRoastedRoot.net #glutenfree #healthyrecipe

You’re looking at my newest favorite sauce for all the bowl recipes I consume. As we all know, a well-engineered sauce is what brings all the scrumtrulescence to a big bowl o’ food. It ties the ingredients together into a cohesive unit so you feel as though the meal is a marriage of ingredients rather than random ingredients thrown helter-skelter in a bowl.

One of my priorities when writing my upcoming cookbook, Paleo Power Bowls, was ensuring all my sauces were dialed in. Not only does each bowl recipe come with its own sauce or dressing of some sort, but I added bonus sauces at the end of the book to help change things up and keep things interesting.

Low-FODMAP Pesto Sauce - a garlic-free, dairy-free recipe for pesto sauce that is Low-FODMAP and vegan - perfect for those with food sensitivities

Pesto sauce adds an incredible pop of flavor to everything it touches. I’ve always been a huge fan of pesto, and have made it homemade for over a decade. I recently changed up the way I make pesto because I’m sensitive to garlic, which is a high-FODMAP food that triggers my IBS symptoms.

In addition, while fermented dairy isn’t a huge trigger for me, I do try to avoid dairy when possible. In essence, I go garlic-free and dairy-free when I make pesto, which may sound like an epic snooze fest, but rest assured, I have a formula for low-FODMAP pesto that is easy on my digestive system while still being super flavorful.
