So ever since I started making vegetable sauce, I always want to prepare it all time. Most times I look at my refrigerator and notice varieties of vegetables, you don’t just want to let them sit there without a plan of what to do with, and you don’t want them to spoil. So, what’s the next alternative? Chop everything up and use for the vegetable sauce. The interesting thing about this sauce is that you can use as minimum as you require or more. You can constantly test out something fresh with it.

Vegetable curry sauce is prepared from various vegetable use in making salad most especially Nigerian salad. Vegetables are chopped in a nice way to enjoy a wide range of staple foods with vegetables inclusive in each meal. I do eat the sauce without any staple food at times, so you can try it. It is nutritious and got varieties of vitamins. It’s simple and very flavorful, you should have with you daily.
