Vegan Living Caesar Salad

March 24th, 2011 § 2 comments

Two of my most favourite things from the “old days” are Caesar Salad and Chicken Fingers.  Would you believe me if I told you that I’ve created the exact dish in vegan form?  It’s true!!  I’m really NOT joking.   My Caesar Salad is an adaptation from Troterr and Klein’s book Raw.  For the “chicken fingers“, Gardein makes an amazing version.  I actually have a really hard time believing that they are not real thing.  While made with soy, something I usually try to avoid, I treat myself  on occasion to this 90 calorie version of the old days…

Ingredients

1 head Romain lettuce
3/8 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight
3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
1 medium clove of garlic (as I don’t mind garlic, I usually add 2 or 3 cloves)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1tbsp nutritional yeast
1tbsp Nama Shoyu
1/2 tsp dulse flakes
1/2 tsp raw agave nectar
1/2 cup of water (may need a little less or more – add slowly)
1/4 cup water, reserved to help adjust thickness of dressing
freshly ground pepper to taste (I add quite a bit)
2tbsp capers

Clean and dry the lettuce and tear into bit size pieces.  Set aside.

For the dressing, put everything on the ingredients list (except the lettuce and capers) into a high speed blender and blend until smooth.  How much dressing you like on your salad is really up to you, but I start with a few tablespoons and then toss with my clean hands until all the lettuce is coated.  Add more dressing if desired and toss again with the capers.  You can add croutons to your salad if you choose (I haven’t this time but stay tuned for a recipe in the future.  If you are adding store bought croutons, be sure to make sure they are animal free.).  Guilt free comfort food….
