High Protein DIY Mustard

Often condiments are heavily relied on to make American cuisine tempting. Many dishes are hard to imagine without traditional condiments. Just imagine hot dogs without ketchup and mustard, or burgers without all the trimmings, or meat loaf without ketchup, or sandwiches without mayo. When adopting a more whole foods plant-based meal model, the condiments are often where a lot of the hidden refined foods, like sugar and oil, and gastric irritants (think hot spices) reside. This mustard packs a lot of flavor and punch into the familiar yellow sauce that is often used in sandwiches and other places. But it is very nutrient dense with a bean base, and full of health promoting garlic and turmeric. Even people who tell me they don’t use mustard, because they don’t like it that much, love the flavor and will use this version. Others who LOVE mustard, tell me they could gladly replace the usual version with this recipe. It only has a few ingredients and is very easy to make. This does have some oil in it, but is much better for you than the store-bought version.
