Classic Vegan Tartar Sauce

Vegan Tartar Sauce

There is almost nothing better than good old tartar sauce with pretty much anything crispy and fried. Tempeh ‘fish ‘n chips’, crispy seitan strips, even french fries are made better with a little dip in that classic sauce. Here is a simple recipe so you can make your own. I call for a variety of fresh herbs – it is best with all three – but use what you have, just aim for the full amount, even if it is just one herb. It will change the flavour a bit, but it will still be fantastic. This will keep for a good 5-7 days covered in the refrigerator, but the herb flavours will be less fresh over time.
