Horsing Around

A couple days ago I received a jar of Horseradish Dill Mustard from Foodzie.

This product combines 3 faves of mine:

1. Horseradish: I have a Horseradish Relish Dressing recipe which I use on salads or as a veggie dipper

2. Dill: I have a Vegan Creamy Lemon, Dill & Herb Dressing recipe too that is great on spiralized raw noodles or as a veggie dip

3. Mustard:  I use it on everything from salads to crackers to recipes.   Recently, I found a certain type of mustard I had been looking for for 10 years.

I went “all out” and used my horseradish dill mustard as a dip for some carrots and broccoli.  I love simplicity.

The horseradish has a kick, it’s not overly dill-ey so it doesn’t overpower the other flavors, and has a nice sweetness to it which I loved.

And no added sodium, garlic, or onions = best things ever because I am not a fan of any!

The  horseradish won’t last long.  In fact, it’s already almost gone.  I love horseradish!

In keeping with a condiments theme, let me remind you just how much I adore them with these recipes:

Ketchup & Mustard Lover’s Protein & Veggie Mash


Salsa & Cheezy Baked Beans & Vegetables


Mango Ginger Maple Tofu (with mango ginger chutney, one of the best condiments ever)

From my last post with the No Bake Vanilla Cake Batter Chocolate Truffles, thanks for the high praise!  And I am glad there are some cake batter fans in the house, too.

Foodgawker picked up the picture and recipe so that made me really happy and like the hours of cooking, photographing, editing, and posting was all worth it!

Also, I edited the post to include a gluten-free and dairy-free option to the recipe.  Read the recipe, at the bottom, if this is of interest to you.

And thanks for letting me know what you’d like to see me make next.  I am always open to suggestions!

Dessert: I’ll remind you of last week’s recipe for No Bake Nutter Butter Special K Bars



1. Do you like horseradish?


2. Do you like condiments?  Favorites?

Yes and my faves are: ketchup, mustard, sweet pickle relish, sweet chutneys, and vegan slaw dressing.

Condiments I am just meh about: tahini, hummus (only because beans and I do not get along in any true quantity), bbq sauce/soy sauce (the sodium is a deal breaker), and olives (not sure if they are technically a condiment but I’m not a fan).

3. What kind of horsing around did you do this weekend?

After my fall, I had to take it easy with workouts and just did some gentle walking and stretching.  I also worked, spent time in the kitchen, and spent time with Skylar which was awesome.

P.S. If you’re just catching up on posts, here are mine since Friday:

  1. That mustard sound good! My favourite condiment is probably salad dressing…..

  2. Love all things spicy! Horse radish is on this yummy list!! :)

  3. I’m not into horseradish, I prefer mustard..yummy! your blog always makes me feel hungry =) nice pictures..

  4. The mustard sounds great, I’d probably just use it as a dip too. And so many great recipes here for inspiration.

    1. Yes, it has a nice kick.
    2. Yes, mustard and creamy vegan sauces made fresh in the Vita-Mix.
    3. Not much, it was pretty laid back. I wanted to throw my work laptop out the window, but I didn’t. :-P

  5. You always make everything look so good! Including mustard!

  7. I used to be a condiment addict. I had a fridge full of different sauces. It was a huge problem! It wasn’t until I went gluten free that I really cut back on my condiment usage. (thank goodness) I still LOVE ketchup but started to make my own with tomato paste + raisins + apple cider vinegar. Also, I love sauerkraut but I don’t count that as a condiment because it’s downright fantastic for you! I’m still dreaming of those cake balls… I need to get some GF mix and give it a try.

  8. OOH YES I love horseradish! Esp in bloody marys :)

  9. I love ketchup. People are generally grossed out when they see me eating burgers at restaurants because I totally drown the thing in ketchup. It’s a bad scene! I love mustard too and hummus!

  10. I find horseradish to me too hot for me. My tongue is not very well adapted to spice. I do love mustard though and I find ketchup to be too sweet although I used to LOVE it. In fact I used to love getting the Big Mac sauce at McDonald’s and it was so spicy I’d sweeten it with added ketchup.

    I love hummus, (homemade) ranch dressing, mustard, and…that’s pretty much it for condiments. Although I use nut butters like a condiment like they are going out of style ;)

  11. Hi Averie! I just received my FIRST order from iHerb! I used your coupon code and got a great deal on a big container of nutritional yeast (a lovely “condiment” you introduced me to!) Seriously, I sprinkle this on salads, make a creamy sauce with cashews to top steamed broccoli, put it on eggs, it is so versatile and tasty! Thank you!

    As for other condiments: I love grainy mustards, like grey poupon. I’ve never tried horseradish. I guess the name kind of makes me wonder….? What’s your favorite way to eat it? And since you confessed your love for Coffee Mate, I must confess mine for VELVEETA! I know is it packed with awful ingredients, but it is SO yummy on steamed broccoli. I only have it once every few months, so I figure it won’t kill me :)

    Hope you are healing up from your fall!

  12. I love horseradish(and thank my dad for that) but, don’t hate me, I don’t like mustard! I actually have one kind of mustard I’ll eat and it does taste good, but it’s dill mustard. And I love the dill, but not really the mustard. Lol. I don’t like olives either. I’m not a huge fan of any condiment except maybe bbq sauce sometimes… but I like soy sauce and ketchup and all that. Just not enough to put it on everything. It was so nice and sunny out yesterday(this is a big deal for us, haha) so we got to spend lots of time outside. Nothing too major just pulling weeds and kicking a soccer ball around :D

  13. I like mustard!

    I live on onions and garlic and olives (okay, I don’t live on it but I cook with it a lot)

    I always leave your blog hungry!

    I have to check out this cake batter treat! i LOVE cake batter anything!

  14. I used to be afraid of horseradish because of how strong it can be, but now I love it! And mustard-well I can put it on anything and everything :)

    Oh ps I really want to try those cake batter truffles!
