Anyone else in a major post-holiday food coma? Candies, cookies, mashed potatoes with TONS of vegan butter.. I cannot complain.
The holidays are a time to enjoy family and the life that we have been gifted by God. I also tend to over do it during the holidays. I will say this year has been my healthiest holiday season yet, but I still feel like I could use a reset. Especially my skin.. EEK.. way to much oil was consumed and my skin now hates me.
So, I will be eating fully raw for 14 days! (starting Friday.. I have left overs to eat) I will be testing tons of RAW Vegan recipes these next few weeks and I will be sharing some of them with you!
This first recipe is creamy, dreamy, tangy, cheesy.. you will not believe it is raw let along vegan. I will be sharing a raw vegan Caesar salad dressing with you that will blow your mind! So easy, no prep and all you need is a blender! Lets get started..
Raw Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing
Makes 2 cups- Keep in an airtight container for up to 10 days.
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1-2 cups water (depending on desired thickness)
- 1 pitted date (soaked in water for 5-10 minutes)
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 raw garlic clove
- the juice from 1/2 a lemon
- a few dashed of liquid/coconut aminos or tamari (optional)
- fresh vegetables- romaine, spinach, carrots, zucchini, cucumber, ect
Add cashews, 1 cup water, date, nutritional yeast, garlic, lemon juice, black pepper and aminos to the blender. Blend on high until very smooth, you may have to scrape down the sides to get it blended fully. Add additional water if needed. This dressing will thicken in the fridge and i prefer mine to be thinner for salads but thicker if being used for a dip. Taste and add additional black pepper as needed. Store in a mason jar and toss on salads, zucchini noodles, or other vegetables. This also makes a great dip for buffalo cauliflower and vegetable sticks.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Please let me know if you try it out. Make sure to check back for more RAW vegan recipes these next few weeks!
