Gremolata Sauce | Vegan Italian Fresh Condiment


This Italian fresh sauce is the perfect spring condiment. This simple vegan sauce has a fruity lemon flavor mixed with the fresh herbs that create an amazing combination with legumes, but also in pates, hummus,  falafels, vegan meatballs, sandwiches

Italian gastronomy is much more complex than pizza and pasta: there is a big variety of rice, legumes, and vegetable dishes and I love to learn more and more of them.

Gremolata Sauce is a typical sauce from the area of Milano and depending on which house we are in the recipe will be different (like every Italian dish basically hahaha).
