I shall! This recipe is very special. It was given to me by my best friends mom. It comes from the hollyhock cookbook. Hollyhock is a learning center (spa? retreat? cult?) on Cortes Island, British Columbia. I never even especially liked salads until I had this dressing. It legitimately changed my life. Anyways on to the recipe…
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup tamari
1-4 cloves garlic
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons tahini
I usually cut the recipe in half when I make it. This is seriously the best dressing ever though. I can’t emphasize this enough. Enjoy.
My standard work lunch salad. Spinach (or kale) topped with quinoa, shredded beets, shredded carrots, steamed mushrooms, dried crans, and pumpkin seeds with a homemade nutritional yeast dressing. Hands down my favorite salad to quickly throw together before a shift.
Taco salad that I’m taking to work tonight with steamed kale, corn, daiya cheese, simple guac, tomatoes, and raw walnut and sundried tomato taco meat. If I were smart there would be a neat mound of tortilla chips in the middle to round this dish out. But I’m not smart so I forgot to buy them and am going to have to buy them at work.

vegan doesn’t mean nontoxic! be careful about reading labels and making sure what you put on your body is safe.
This brand is also formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP (dibutyl phtalate) free. I don’t know what those technically are but they sound bad! (I’m guessing carcinogens?)
Cruelty free nail polish: Butter London. I usually never do my nails but recently started. I thought finding cruelty free nail polish would be hard, but apparently there are lots of easy to find brands that are vegan like elf and OPI. I’ve had this bottle for a long time though and I love it.
Ginger cantaloupe juice. Last summer my sister read in a magazine that melon and ginger pair perfectly together and she became obsessed with making watermelon ginger juice. Recently I tried the same thing with cantaloupe and it is my new favorite juice. I just juice a whole cantaloupe and grate a ton of ginger into it. For this one I added the pulp back into it, which isn’t as enjoyable but my compost has mysteriously disappeared again so I’m trying to cut back on kitchen waste. I haven’t tried it with honey dew yet but I’m looking forward to it. Seriously try this or with watermelon. It’s the bomb.
Q’ia cereal for breakfast this morning.This stuff is expensive so I would never buy it for myself but my grandma picked up this bag for me. And I’m grateful that she did because it’s delicious! The ingredients are just chia seeds, buckwheat groats, hemp seeds, cranberries, sunflower oil, almonds and natural vanilla flavouring. I mixed mine with some left over oatmeal, and topped it with banana slices, chopped almonds, agave and almond milk.
Pink peppercorn and hibiscus flower kale chips. I picked these up in Sidney the other day on sale for $2.75. I can’t resist a sale…in any case though they were SO GOOD. Bags of kale chips never last long enough…I had these with a hummus and veggie wrap for dinner tonight.
