TGIF! Especially for me since I’m taking today off for a 4 day weekend and having a relaxing morning at home drinking coffee and enjoying the foggy, drizzly weather.
I actually like this weather, it’s peaceful, pretty, and a great excuse to park it in front of the fireplace like Miko.
Or in front of a space heater at my desk this morning. :-) I’m looking forward to a few down days to relax and make progress on sorting through stuff I don’t need for the new year.
And still on a roll with dressings this week trying to create more creative veggie-based ones with a lot of flavor. This one is raw broccoli based and still creamy and tangy thanks to tahini and lemon juice. And has a cheesy flavor and texture. Why not season veggies with more veggies?
Cheesy Broccoli Dressing
- 1/2 cup of chopped broccoli
- 1/4 cup of tahini
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 tbsp. of nutritional yeast
- 1/2 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.
This recipe is a great way to utilize broccoli stalk which is actually very tasty and one of my favorite parts of broccoli.
The texture is creamy and cheesy looking.
Perfect for coating a salad.
The flavor is tangy and cheesy with a hint of garlic bite and worked great with this romaine salad.
