I was munching on raw cauliflower today whilst painting and wishing that I had some lovely dip to dip the crunchy pieces in. So I decided to make something. I was really jonesing for my cheddary cheeze but am out of red peppers. I really love making recipes from scratch. It’s fun to throw things together and see how they will turn out.

So without further ado, here’s the recipe I just concocted:

Curry Carrot Dressing

2 cups raw cashews
2-3 dates, pitted
1 large carrot, washed and chopped
1/2 smallish yellow onion
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp miso, or nama shoyu
pinch cayenne
1 tsp hot curry
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
1 cup+ fresh water

In the VitaMix, blend until smooth. Add more water if necessary to make it more like a dressing. Feel free to adjust the spices to your liking.

It’s a really nice dip and I’m enjoying it now with everything: brown rice, veggies, salad, as a spread for wraps or sandwiches. This made quite a lot so it’s good to just put in a container and keep in your fridge.

Happy blending and experimenting!

much love,
Linda
