I was tweeting about my lunch yesterday and had a request for my Paleo mustard recipe :) So I thought I’d share!
- 1 cup mustard seeds
- ½ cup vinegar
- ½ cup water
- ½ lemon, juiced
- (Optional) sea salt & pepper, to taste
Take your mustard seeds and place them in a bowl. Mix in the vinegar, water and lemon juice and let it soak (about 8 hours). Once they’ve absorbed the liquid, I like to blend it in the food processor. You might need to add a little extra vinegar in to get it to the desired consistency..but usually no more than a tablespoon. If you like your mustard really yellow (I Do!) add in some Turmeric.
For a more traditional tasting mustard, add in 1/4 tsp Sea Salt and a drop of sugar.
Love some honey mustard?
Simply add in a little organic honey until it tastes like you like it :)
There you have it :) Mustard with no “secret” flavors or ingredients & 100% Paleo. Your mustard will hit optimal flavor about a week after it’s made and is good to store for about a month. If I seems like a bit much or you’re crunched for time, try Annie’s Naturals. After looking at 4 different brands that claimed to be “organic”, “paleo”..Annie’s is the only one I’ve found to be 100% Paleo.
Happy Clean Eating!
