Sun-Dried Tomato Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

1 1/2 cups chopped sun-dried tomatoes

Kale with Cashew Cream Sauce

Almost everything tastes better with cashew sauce! But it is high-fat, so I use it sparingly.

Creamy Basil Sauce

Habanera Salsa

We have almost a constant supply of this salsa in my house. It is good on salad or as a dip for raw veggies like peppers or cucumbers, or on beans or grains. Use 2 Habaneras for a mild salsa, or 4 for a hot spicy one.

NOTE: fresh peaches can be substituted for the mango

Peanut Sauce

Mix all ingredients together well. Makes about 1 cup.
