Creamy Dressing – Raw and vegan

20141022165932(4)

This creamy tasty dressing is my new favorite!
It’s absolutely gorgeous!
Not just great as a salad dressing, It’s also fab as a dipping sauce.
Soak your nuts.
Put all the ingredients in your blender and it’s done.
Easy-peasy, with a bit of lemon squesy.
Yum Yum!

This raw sprouted pea and mint hummus is full of goodness and so much more smooth then a plain sprouted hummus, which fore some can be a bit on the  harsh side.
It’s the perfect dish to whisk up for a great summer picnic..
Hope you like it!

Rocket and Pistachio Pesto

20140615172238(1)

I made the above video yesterday and I had the pistachio and rocket pesto with butternut squash and pomegranate seeds on top., so delicious!
Today I can’t wait to have the rest of the pesto for lunch with freshly spiralled zucchini noodles. YUM!
Pistachios are a great source of copper, manganese and B-vitamins they also come with important protein and fibre.
Rocket salad really is a super nutritious leafy green, packed with calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K.
Hope you like it!

Lime, Ginger and Tahini Dressing

 

20140430173532(2)

After a very indulgent Easter weekend I’m really looking forward to chew on some proper rabbit food i.e. salads.
I’m prepping my Spicy Autumn Salad that you can find here for lunch (it works as well during spring) but I’m using the above Lime, Ginger and Tahini dressing.
It’s one of my favourite dressings and perfect when you need to jazz up your veg.
It goes with most salads and I sometimes make a double batch and bring with me to work where they have a good salad bar but the dressings are not that healthy.
