Eat two of your five servings of vegetables / fruit a day with this delicious and light sauce.

This sauce freezes well and is really versatile, it can either be savoured as is and it is delicious or for example by adding shrimp or bacon etc.

It is therefore worthwhile to make a double batch. If your children do not like vegetable pieces, you can simply mix everything.
