I decided I probably had enough of each color to make separate red and green sauces. Here is the green in production. This is more of a quick recipe where everything goes into the blender at once and bob's your uncle.
One recipe called for a purée of boiled carrots onions and garlic. I wasn't sure which one I was going to add it to, but I decided on red in the end, as it would have destroyed the green color.
My other recipe called for a fermentation, which is always of excitement for me. They say to leave it to ferment as long as you like, tasting it each day until the flavour is just right. I waited about a week, and then I was sick of waiting, so I blasted it in the vitamix with just a little of the carrot mixture, which in itself was pretty spicy because I boiled them inthe same water I used to blanch the peppers.
When we moved into this house over 10 years ago, I was way into HP steak sauce on scrambled eggs. My inner hoarder convinced me I needed to save all the empty bottles and they have sat in the basement ever since. Until now! I had way more of the red sauce, so I put that in the hoarded bottles, and bought the bottles for the green, which came with a little dripper thingy that I had to remove to get any sauce out of it. I brought these to our Christmas Eve gumbo party and they were a big hit! More on the vegan gumbo here.
