This Healthy ‘Liquid Gold’ Sauce Makes *Everything* Taste Way Better

Liquid gold isn't what you think it is. It's so much cheesier. Dana Shultz of Minimalist Baker recently shared her 5-Minute Liquid Gold Sauce: a plant-based mix composed of chickpeas, lemon, nutritional yeast, turmeric, and tahini. You can even make it spicy by adding a dash of cayenne. Inspired by a sauce at a popular vegetarian joint in Portland called The Whole Bowl, it's essentially a creamy topping that not only adds nutritional value to everything it touches, but also an insane amount of flavor.

The healthy sauce only requires a handful of ingredients and five minutes to put together. A batch can be stored in your refrigerator for up to a week—if it lasts that long since the uses are endless. Shultz says it's perfect to dress salads or sauce up roasted vegetables. You can use it with barbecue skewers, nachos, burrito bowls, and more. Personally, I'm already imagining it drizzled on my cauliflower wings. Get ready for gold-plated everything.
