I adapted this gluten free, vegan, plant based recipe from health guru, Kris Carr. If you have not read her book, Crazy Sexy Diet please order it today! Her book is the easiest how to on getting healthy and reads like your cool older sister is giving you advice.
Like 98% of the recipes I post...this takes 5 seconds to make and it's a real crowd pleaser at dinner parties.
In a bowl or glass measuring cup mix:
3/4 cup of Veganaise
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
the juice of one lemon
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
a splash of water
a splash of olive oil or flax seed oil
tons of ground black pepper.
Mix the above all together and this is your gorgeous caesar dressing.
Pour over chopped romaine. ( I like a mix of romaine and arugula) toss to evenly coat the leaves.
You can enjoy just as is but I like to serve mine covered in dulse flakes and topped with toasted pumpkin seeds, chopped avocado and red pepper flakes. I even occasionally will serve with baked tofu. If you know someone who eats meat but is lactose intolerant this salad would be divine for them topped with chicken!
btw toasting a raw seed like pumpkin is so easy..literally throw the seed into a dry pain over medium heat and stir until you see a little bit of black forming on the seed...soooo delish and great source of zinc.
