How to Make an Agave Nectar Dipping Sauce
Diabetics get the short end when it comes to good food. Almost anything pre-prepared is loaded with sugars and sodium, or is little more than useless carbs. One alternative option is agave nectar. This is a natural sweetener derived from the agave plant, the same one tequila is made from. Agave nectar has the lowest glycemic index of any natural sweetener, which is perfect culinary fodder for every diabetic.
1 tbsp agave nectar
- Flavored nectars are available at health food markets. Vanilla, maple, and cinnamon seem to be the most common. (The maple is great on pancakes.)
1 tsp dry mustard, adjust to taste
BBQ seasoning, BBQ sauce works well, but be careful of sugars
Other flavoring and seasoning ingredients may be added
Mix the dry mustard with water or milk.Powdered milk can be added for a thicker sauce and a protein boost.
Mix up the BBQ seasoning.There are many ways to mix this; the ingredient list is almost unlimited, from expensive ingredients to very low budget ones. BBQ seasoning can be mixed with water to a paste consistency.
Mix the mustard and the BBQ mix together.
Add in the agave nectar.
- Use plain nectar or a mix of various amounts of vanilla, maple and cinnamon.
Serve.Use with any food you'd normally need a dipping sauce for.
- This method can be used to make anything from sweet 'n' sour sauces, duck sauces, dipping sauces, and stir-fry sauces.
- If the sauce is too thin, try adding a small amount of flour or cornstarch. Heat the saucegentlyand slowly until the desired consistency is achieved.
- Herbs and spices can be used to increase the flavor profile. Almost anything can be tried; just be careful of the sugar content and the empty carbs.
- Agave Nectar is used anywhere honey would normally be used. As a result, you would need to be careful of sugars and carbs if you are using prepared foods.
- One of the biggest offenders in processed ingredients is sodium. In its own way, this is almost as dangerous as sugars.
- Agave nectar is high in fructose. Most people on a processed diet eat too much fructose already; as such, use this nectar in moderation.
