I am ready for the weekend and I think Miko is too, he’s been pouting at me for being busy.
Lots of make up cuddles and walks this weekend.
We’ve only had the AeroGarden set up for seven days, but check out the kale growth already!
All of the kale is sprouting like crazy and the herbs are even popping up too.
I will be interested to see how much kale we can get from each little grow pod, some seem really packed with sprouts.
I might just be having too much fun with this peanut powder lately, but I couldn’t resist trying it in a salad dressing too.
I found a peanut ginger dressing recipe online that was loaded with full-fat peanut butter, oil, sugar, and syrup! Dressings shouldn’t have more calories than the salad, especially if they’re empty calories! This version gets it peanut flavor from high-protein peanut powder and sweetness from raisins with a savory kick from ginger and sriracha.
Peanut Ginger Dressing
- ¼ cup peanut powder
- 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp. tamari
- ¼ cup raisins
- 1” chunk of fresh ginger
- 1 clove of garlic
- dash of sriracha
- ½ cup water, as needed
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 2-4 servings.
Yes, that’s chopped Lightlife Vegan Smart Dogs in the salad, I was in an interesting mood. They’re hubby’s favorite vegan dog and pretty low cal for the occasional junky hot dog craving. In my defense, there are also home grown sprouts, purple carrots, and organic greens.
And the dressing brought that interesting combo to life for a dinner salad with a spicy, tangy ginger peanut flavor.
It adds a creamy and rich texture.
Ginger and peanut are so great together especially with garlic kick.
Enjoy a tangy, sweet, and savory salad with flavorful and light dressing!
