Ginger Cilantro Sauce

For thousands of years, ginger has been valued for its aromatic, culinary and medicinal properties, even mentioned in the writings of Confucius.  Ginger helps to promote the elimination of intestinal gas, soothe the intestinal tract, and inhibit anti-inflammatory effects.  Ginger tea is proven to relieve motion sickness better than Dramamine. It can also help relieve anxiety, lower high blood pressure, soothe migraines, relieve arthritis pain, and lower cholesterol levels. 

Try this simple recipe for Ginger Cilantro Sauce 

Reduce ½ cup of orange juice to 2 tablespoons.  Add to blender with ½ cup raw unsalted almond butter, 1 ½ tablespoons of rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons tamari, 1 teaspoon cane sugar, ½ teaspoon chili paste, 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, and 2-3 tablespoons of minced ginger.   Transfer to bowl and fold in ¼ cup of chopped mint leaves and ¼ cup of chopped cilantro.
