So I hope you will continue to follow me as we embark on this journey. As I change and transform, I will be posting new recipes as I come across them and learn how to make them. This new form of "cooking" is going to be fun and an awesome new challenge!
Here is the first all RAW vegan recipe I have made. It is a staple around here, so I thought it imperative that it be one of the first things I learn to make. ;D And if I do say so myself, it is DELISH!
2 cups nuts raw cashews; soak (1-2 hrs is fine, then drain)
3/4 - 1 cup filtered water for blending
3 tablespoons lemon juice (translates into approx 1/2 lemon)
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons agave (or 3 dates)
2 cloves garlic (or as much as you are brave to add ;)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon dill
1 tablespoon Himalayan Red Sea salt
1/2 teaspoon basil
And to add after it's done:
1/4 cup finely minced parsley
In a Vitamix/standard blender, blend all ingredients till creamy and smooth except the last 2, then once blended, stir in the last 2 ingredients. It should have the consistency of a pourable dressing. Refrigerate after making. It should be good for up to 2 weeks.
