Quick Berry Coulis
Makes 2 cups
30 minutes or fewer
Coulis is a fancy word for a colorful, versatile dessert sauce. Because the berry pulp is not cooked, the flavor of fresh, ripe fruit really shines through. Chef’s secret: place coulis in a small squirt bottle to decorate dessert plates.

- fruit, such as strawberries)
- 2 Tbs. sugar or agave nectar
- 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice

2. Add 1/4 cup water and orange liqueur, if using, to berry mixture, and purée until completely smooth.
3. Strain through fine mesh sieve, stirring and pressing with wooden spoon to remove seeds.
