Three years ago I shared the recipe to the best dressing in the world, The Nutritional Yeast Dressing. I am not exaggerating when I say I've been stopped in the neighborhood about this recipe. Moms and daughters have bonded over it, telling me it was so good they dug salad greens out of fridge to get every last drip of it out of the blenders and into their mouths. My pal Birdie said he'd eat his newborn if they dipped him in it. (Yes, morbid, his words.)
I had a period of mild obsession over this dressing, but then my taste buds changed. The dressing was formulated before I was fully raw vegan for a while, after going vegan my tolerance for salt has drastically changed. The last time I had that dressing it was WAY too rich. For the holidays I've formulated the "light" edition! Make a bunch of it and gift it, make it for Christmas and New Years parties! Yum!
9 T Nutritional Yeast
3/4 Cups 1 Cup Olive Oil
3 Teaspoons Tamari
1/2 Cup Vinegar
3 Dashes of Sesame Oil (or 3 Tablespoons if you'd like, add one at time and taste test)
4 Tablespoons Tamari
1 to 2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder to Taste
Blend it all together and enjoy! I'd start with 1 tablespoon of the garlic powder and/or tamari and taste-test. The flavor profile is distinctly umami with sweet and savory flavor.
This recipe is especially delicious on: salads, popcorn, pasta, cut raw veggies as a dip, and cooked veggies. I've served it at gatherings and every inch of veggie is devoured because it's a vehicle to bring that precious sauce to an eager mouth!
Have a Merry Christmas! I had this zombie apocalypse survival technique post (It'll make sense when you read it) planned for gift-giving but time conspired against me! Augh! Now I'm off to my moms to make ALL the damn tamales for the holidays.
