wanted a dip/dressing so this is what I did

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
