This sauce owes its spiciness mainly to the soup greenery, consisting of carrots, parsley, parsley sausages, leek and celeriac. Especially the essential oils from the various vegetables, especially leek, celery and parsley have a lot to offer: They stimulate the metabolism, make the vegetables digestible and strengthen the intestinal flora. The latter is particularly beneficial for strong immune systems.

To make the vegetable sauce beautifully spicy and aromatic, patient toasting is particularly important. Only the roasting substances bring out the full flavour.

The sauce can also be prepared in larger quantities and frozen. A little tip: Fill the sauce into ice cube moulds. This makes it easier to portion the sauce.
