Good afternoon! It’s a beautiful day here in South Australia today and I have spent most of it sitting out the back, enjoying the sunshine. I’ve been organising my personal recipe collection/book which I’ve been meaning to do for about six months now!
You see, I am one of those people who are guilty of collecting recipes on bits of notepaper, ripped out of magazines or whole pages scrawled out by me from my favourite vegan or raw blogs. This pile has been slowly growing and I’ve been finding it harder to locate recipes quickly because of the mass. So I’ve been on the hunt for a lined notebook with an elastic page holder and finally bought one about a month ago. So today was organisation day!
Flicking through the piles, I found a salad dressing I’d copied down from Carrie on Vegan, which I read on a regular basis! It was for her Creamy Hummus Dressing (or hommus, as I’ve always spelt it!) which I has scribbled down, but never made! As I had most the ingredients on hand and was craving a big salad for lunch, I whipped up a batch!
This is how I served it, with a baby cos lettuce, radishes, red capsicum, Lebanese cucumber, alfalfa sprouts, raw corn kernels and avocado:
And then I mixed it all up so it didn’t look quite so pretty:
It was so yummy and a nice, substantial lunch! I love hommus and often make my own in the Vitamix, so I really loved this dressing. Only change I made was I didn’t have any non-dairy milk, so I just added water in its place and it was still beautiful!
For those of you who haven’t tried raw corn kernels, try them! I actually thought they were inedible raw until I did Ani Phyo’s 15-Day Fat Blast which often included them in salads.
Another thing I love about Carrie’s site is that she is an advocate of the Dr Fuhrman’s Eat to Live Program, which I have been interested in for some time. I still haven’t got around to buying the book, but there is a great page done by Susan at FatFree Vegan (another site I haunt with scary regularity!).
Sorry for all the links. I’m thinking of starting another page with all the resources and recipe pages I have found inspirational in becoming a vegetarian/vegan. Would this interest anyone?
Anyway, enough rambling. Stay awesome x
