Vegan Caesar Dressing

vegancaesardressing.jpg

I am not a Vegan but I do know that many vegan recipes will leave out the crap, and by crap I mean dairy.   This recipe is great with traditional romaine lettuce or by doing a kale Caesar salad. 

1 Avocado 

1/4 cup water 

4 cloves of garlic minced/chopped 

1 tablespoon of dijon mustard 

2 tablespoons of Nutritional Yeast 

1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar 

1/2 lemon juiced

1/4 tsp sea salt pepper to taste

Throw in vitamix or blender until smooth. You can also add this all to a food processor and get the same results.  

Add to finely chopped romaine for a healthy Caesar Salad

Recipe: Butternut Squash Soup

IMG_1123.jpg

Butternut Squash Soup. 

Tonights facebook live is a recipe i have had in all of my cleanses.  It is great for super cold days like today and also great when you need a sweet comfort food, so to speak. 

Most of the work comes from prepping the squash. You can now buy the squash already prepped if you are in a pinch in most grocery stores. You may pay a little more but it is worth the time if you don't have it to spare. 

cut both ends off and slice down the middle, remove seeds.

Remove shin on both pieces.

Once this work is taken care of the rest is pretty easy sailing. 

Recipe:

1 pound peeled butternut squash, cut into chunks

1 medium onion, sliced 

 red apple cut into chunks  

1 1/2 cups of veggie broth

1 tsp sea salt  

Pumpkin spice or cinnamon, cloves, or even Italian herbs or dill · 

1/2 cup of canned coconut milk 

option of honey, maple syrup or coconut sugar for a sweeter version. 

Stick all the ingredients into a high speed blender except milk and herbs. Blend on high for 10 min ( if you want it hot and steamy) then mix in milk and herbs when done.  Play with your flavors and spices to get it exactly where you want it.  If you are choosing to keep it raw, you will need to blend it for a good amount of time in your vitamix to get it warm and creamy.   Enjoy!

When my schedule allows on Wednesday night the kids and I do a Facebook live recipe.  Addi enjoys helping me out and it allows me to show that I do teach healthy eating, but don't have time to blog recipes since I am with clients and my kids all day.  

These videos stay up on my business Facebook page, Sarah Moore Health, but I am also going to start sharing them here.  I hope you enjoy, make them, share, tag and have fun with getting healthy!

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

2 ripe Avocados

1/2 tsp of vanilla extract 

1-2 tsp of coconut oil

1.5 tablespoons of cacao powder

1 dropper full of vanilla stevia (or use coconut sugar or maple syrup)

dash of sea salt 

Remember avocados come in different sizes, adjust the flavor accordingly.

Open avocados remove seed scoop into a food processor. Add remaining ingredients. You might have to adjust cacao powder and stevia to your taste preference as you blend.   You may want it darker or sweeter.   Place in whatever cute dish you would like, top with goji berries and cacao nibs and dig in!
