VEGAN CAESAR SALAD WITH PUMPKIN SEED PARMESAN
The key to this stupidly sexy salad is the dressing so let’s start there.
In a food processor, pour in:
½ cup of pre-soaked cashews (2 hrs is ideal)
½ cup of water
Juice of 1 lemon
1-2 Tbspoons of Tamari (or soy sauce if you don’t have a gluten allergy)
1 Tbspoon of olive oil
1 Tbspoon of Nutritional Yeast
1 small pack of seaweed snacks
Salt (Sea salt or Dulse) as needed
I would put more salt if you aren’t putting in anchovies. I personally like to add anchovies to my salad (not the dressing), making it more hearty. I go for vegan options not because I’m actually vegan but because I have an intolerance to all dairy.
Blend it all in the food processor until smooth.
Then cut up your romaine hearts, pour the dressing on top.
1) Add pre-made pumpkin seed parmesan (If you are in NY, I love the One Lucky Duck brand) but there are many on the market.
2) Add a can of chopped anchovies.
P.S. I have been so nervous to try nutritional yeast cuz it just sounds like the least sexy ingredient everrrrr but I’m happy to report it is delish! I was licking the dressing out of the food processor bowl like a maniac.
