Herby Honey Mustard Sauce

Serves 4

Get ready to fall in love with this gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free honey mustard sauce from Jilly Lagasse. “I probably make this two or three times a week for a tasty sauce to jazz up our meals,” she says. “It’s so easy to make, you could probably do it blindfolded… though I probably wouldn’t recommend that. I prefer to throw everything into my Nutribullet and whizz it up in a flash, but feel free to use any blender you like.”


  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil or sunflower oil
  • 1½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Throw all ingredients into a blender and blend for a minute to emulsify the sauce. The fresh thyme leaves won’t break down fully; don’t be alarmed. It will actually add a lovely fresh color to the dish. I like using my Nutribullet for blending, but use whatever you like.
