Honey Thyme Sauce

I love fresh herbs and discovering recipes that use them.  This is simple and wonderful on everything;  pan fried chicken or tofu, vegetables, rice, sandwiches, TOAST.  I'm addicted.  If you don't have any fresh thyme you can use dried, but up the amount to 2 teaspoons and add it at the same time as the onions so it gets a chance to saute and bring out the flavor!

Honey Thyme Sauce


2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 c. finely diced green onions
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
1/2 c. apple cider vinegar OR 1/2 c. of water with the juice of one small lemon
1 c. broth
1/3 c. honey
2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
2 teaspoons nutritional yeast, optional


- Melt the butter in a saucepan.  If you're using dairy butter, it burns easily so keep an eye on it.  When the butter starts to bubble, toss in the onions and saute about 3 minutes.
- Add the thyme and stir.
- Turn the heat high and add the vinegar.  Cook until reduced by around half, about 15 minutes.
- Now reduce the heat to medium, and add the broth and honey.  Simmer for another 15 minutes until it starts to thicken.
- Remove from the heat, whisk in the mustard, and your sauce is done.  Delish!
