Hello & Happy Tuesday!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

With V-day around the corner I thought I would revamp some of my classic recipes as I went through a pink dragon fruit phase back in 2014. For those not familiar with dragon fruit, it’s a bright pink colored fruit that has little to no flavor, making it perfect for creating color in countless dishes as it won’t alter the flavor!

 

While you can achieve a pinkish hue using beets, I promise, nothing will give you a hue quite this shade of pink without pink dragonfruit!

 

 

 

 

 


 

What’s fab about this recipe is that it’s easy, involves staple ingredients, the sauce can be used for a myriad of dishes, you can pair it with veggies if you don’t prefer tofu, the color is fun for Valentine’s Day and kids!

 


 

 

If you’re looking to get creative in your kitchen while also exploring a classic sauce the will become a staple in your home..
