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!
