A creamy Horseradish Sauce is not only a traditional accompaniment to a Sunday roast beef, but it also works really well when served with salmon, cold meats or a glazed ham at Christmas.

Horseradish Sauce is made using horseradish root which is a hot, pungent root vegetable that you should be able to find in your local supermarket or green grocers.

Please take care when prepping your horseradish root as it’s really pungent when peeled so this will need to be done in a well ventilated room. You may also find that it has a similar effect to chopping onions (but a bit worse!), so make sure that you’re also prepared for some potentially watery eyes!

Traditionally, Horseradish Sauce is made using cream, but we’ve used Greek yoghurt in order to keep the calories lower. We’d class our sauce as being ‘medium hot’, but if you’d like yours stronger then you can simply add another 5g of grated horseradish.

Have any grated horseradish left over? Simply freeze it in portions to use later on!
