I love a good hot sauce. In fact, I tend to add heat to most of my dishes. I have a variety of delicious hot sauces that I make on a regular basis, but this one is my favorite! It is simple, easy to make, and has incredible healing powers.
The ingredients in this hot sauce are super medicinal. It always amazes me how one ingredient can have so much powerful healing ability.
Hot Peppers are very healing to the body. They are generally high in vitamin C and they help a lot with colds, flus, and bronchitis. They also boost circulation (ever see someone get red in their face after eating a hot pepper?) and helps with the heart as well. Hot peppers can help to create hydrochloric acid in the stomach and can stimulate peristaltic motion of the gut – think, have you ever needed to ‘go’ after eating hot peppers?
Raw honey is very high in critical minerals such as calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, chromium, molybdenum, and manganese. It is one of the most adaptogenic foods on the planet. In its raw form, honey is a powerful weapon against illness and infections.
Because bees collect from plant species all over, the fructose and glucose in raw honey contain over 200,000 undiscovered phytochemical compounds, including pathogen killers, phytochemicals that protect you from radiation damage, and anti-cancerous phytochemicals. Raw honey can actually stop cancer in its tracks. According to Medical Medium®, raw honey is one of the most powerful brain foods with its highly absorbable sugar and b12 coenzymes, and raw honey actually repairs DNA.
Honey is truly a medicinal gift to our planet.
Garlic is highly medicinal!
“One raw crushed clove of garlic contains the antibiotic equivalent of 100,000 units of penicillin”
– Anthony William, Life-Changing Foods
Additionally, garlic contains very strong antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-cancer, and anti-viral properties. The allicin in garlic has been proven to significantly lower cholesterol and blood pressure. With strong anti-inflammatory properties, this tiny herb is critical for healing from any autoimmune disease.
Ginger contains powerful anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols that reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling. While ginger is an amazing spice that naturally heals both inflammation and infection, ginger is best known for its incredible ability to heal digestive upset and nausea. For centuries, ginger has been used to safely ease indigestion, menstrual cramps, motion sickness, and heartburn. Isn’t it amazing that a spice we take for granted to give a warm, deliciously spicy flavor to our foods can contain so many healing properties?
Muneeza's Hot Sauce
- High-speed blender
- 6-8 red hot peppers (if you use green peppers the color of your sauce will change)
- 2 Tbsp raw honey
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 knob ginger (about 1 inch)
- 2 limes, juiced
- De-seed the peppers, especially if you are sensitive to heat. If you can handle it, like I can, I leave the seeds in!
- Make sure that while you are handling raw hot peppers, that you either use a glove, or be really careful to wash your hands after, so you don’t rub your eye, or nose accidentally.
- Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.
- Other spices I like to bring in include za’atar, cumin or garam masala to change up the primary dressing. The flavor profile is completely different with each type of spice blend.
- One thing to note with seasonings is you want to make sure there is no added salt or flavorings.
