Pair with baked falafel, stuffed eggplant, as a spread on sandwiches or whole wheat pita, in lettuce wraps, as a salad dressing, or as a dip with carrots, cucumbers, broccoli, and veg!

Ingredients
1 Package Firm Tofu
2 Cucumbers
¼ cup Water or Cucumber Juice (explained in directions)
¼ cup Cashews
6 tbsp Lemon Juice
3 cloves Garlic
1 tbsp chopped Dill [fresh]
½ tsp Braggs Liquid Aminos

Directions

1. Slice cucumber down the middle length wise (hot dog style). Remove the seeds with a spoon and place seeds in a high speed blender.

2. Grate cucumber with a cheese grater or a food processor. Place grated cucumber in the middle of a medium/large kitchen towel (or in a cheese cloth). Fold sides of the towel together so the cucumber is in a pouch. Squeeze out excess liquid into a bowl (this liquid can be used in place of water in this recipe or you can drink it - it's delicious). Set the cucumber and towel aside for now.

3. In your blender, add cashews, tofu (drained, but you do not have to press it), lemon, water or cucumber liquid, garlic and braggs liquid aminos. Blend until super creamy, about two minutes depending on your blender.

4. In a medium mixing bowl, empty contents of blender, add drained cucumber, and add the chopped dill. Mix until well combined. The mixture gets thicker and more flavorful if allowed to sit in the fridge for a few hours. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 5 days!

A healthy way to enjoy Dairy-free Mozzarella? You better believe it!

I created this recipe because I have seen the ingredients in the vegan cheeses and I do not love them. There generally is a ton of oil, gums, salt, and highly processed ingredients.
So I came up with this recipe! Adding this NOTzarella with sliced summer tomatoes, fresh basil, and a balsamic drizzle is an amazing way to impress guests! It also works fantastically on homemade pizzas or as a spread on sandwiches!

Sun Dried Tomato Spread

Sun dried tomatoes will always have my heart <3 After spending time in Italy, I came back with three giant bags of sun dried tomatoes. I couldn't wait to start creating with these babies!
This spread can be used on sandwiches, wraps, lettuce boats, as a veggie dip, or thinned out with a little water and used as a salad dressing :)

Looking for a healthy, non-dairy sauce to drizzle on top of tacos, sweet potatoes, pasta, corn on the cob, black bean burgers, roasted veggies, salad, avocado toast, and, let's be honest, just about everything else. This recipe is a great substitution for sour cream that adds an extra kick. It can be used in so many different ways!

Creamy Cashew Dressing

Creamy Cashew Dressing

Healthy dressings are hard to come by. And I mean HARD. Most on the market are filled with sugar, oil, salt, artificial and natural flavors, concentrates, dairy, various fillers and emulsifiers, the list goes on.

Why ruin a nutrient dense salad with a crappy dressing??

The easy solution is to make your own! In the beginning of the week, I make a big batch of this Creamy Cashew Dressing. Having it on hand at a moments notice has been nothing short of a life savor. Prepping this recipes weekly really encourages me to eat more salad and acts as my mayo replacement on sandwiches and other recipes!
