Stars of salad: tofu dill dressing and coconut bacon

Scroll down to content

This cool, creamy dressing and savory crunch rock on any salad– so much that you might not want the salad part.  I seriously considered this, but then decided to be a person and stewed some black beans, beets and sweet potato with rosemary, cumin and chili powder, then blanched a handful of kale.  Be creative with whatever vegetables and herbs/spices you have~5D8E1C1D-D1F9-47FD-B14F-985B782DBB08.JPG

Tofu dill dressing: (plant protein!)

  • 1 silken tofu package
  • ~1/2 cup fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1-2 T lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 T coconut butter or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 T seasoning combination of choice (I used Bragg’s 24 Herb and Spice Seasoning, which contains rosemary, onion, garlic, and 21 others…)
  • Optional: water or veg stock 1 T at a time, as needed to thin

Method: 

Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend from low to high until smooth/ saucy consistency, adjust seasonings to taste

Coconut bacon:

  • 2 cups coconut chips
  • 1 T Coconut aminos, or Tamari

Method: 

  1. Toast coconut chips on non-greased skillet over low-medium heat, tossing with a spatula occasionally as it turns golden
  2. Once it reaches desired toastiness, add Coconut aminos or Tamari to the pan and toss to coat evenly.  Let it toast for a minute or two until it looks pretty dry, then remove from heat.  Garnish on your salad, pancakes, cupcakes, everything foreva
