You have been searching endless hours, scrolling without luck for a flavorful weekend meal that is not too easy and not too difficult to prepare, and there it hits you, your mouth starts to water. Sweet honey, mustard with old-fashioned character and apple cider vinegar to make the marinade come alive. Over a solid slice of protein, or portobello mushroom, rivulets of delectable mustard covering the plate.
Paleo mustard is simple to make at home, and this way you can avoid the potential gluten in commercial varieties. It also gives you the freedom to add your own fresh herbs and spices. You may not know it, but mustard seeds are an excellent source of selenium, which has an anti-inflammatory effect. Black mustard seeds have a very pungent sensation on the tongue, while white mustard seeds provide the yellow color that we all expect from a mustard. With a mortar and pestle you can make a paste of the consistency you desire.
If you are seeking a cupful more of zesty mustard for dipping, simply increase the ingredients proportionately for the honey-mustard sauce. However, if your love for honey-mustard runs deep, and you are prepared to slather it on just about anything that lands on your plate, then we suggest to whip up some South Carolina-style mustard barbecue sauce on the side. It is lovely drizzled over any amount of fresh leafy greens, add a handful of arugula for a spicy bite. Paleo onion rings, anyone?
