WIAW: I Found Love & A New Recipe!
I have a new love in my life…
I had never tried cashew butter before, so I was excited to give it a whirl! I really had no idea what to expect. Was it going to be sweet like almond butter? Thick like peanut butter? I had no idea!
I also had no idea how I wanted to enjoy my first sample of cashew butter either, so I asked around…
I knew Lisa loved adding cashew butter on top of her overnight oat bran
Kristi uses cashew butter as a dip for her veggies…
And another good friend of mine said that her favourite way to enjoy cashew butter was on a slice of Ezekiel toast!
Of course, all ideas sounded incredible to me, but, like always, I needed to be different, so I created a recipe of my own :)
Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing
Makes one serving
1 TBSP cashew butter
1 garlic clove minced
1/4 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup water
I combined all of the ingredients in a small bowl and heated into the microwave until the water began to bubble. Once the water begins to bubble, remove from microwave and stir with a spoon until a smooth dressing forms.
The dressing will appear thin, but let it sit to cool and then it will thicken.
I poured this dressing on top of a bed of fresh romaine, Ezekiel “croutons” that I made from toast, and shrimp.
I was surprised at how much this tasted like Caesar dressing! I am not a fan of many Caesar dressings, but I will definitely be making this again! It was very refreshing!
Even though I loved the taste of the cashew butter in the salad dressing I was still very curious to see how it tasted on its own, so I went back for a second spoonful ;)
I love cashew butter!
I think my almond and hazelnut butter jars are getting pretty jealous. It has only been two days since opening my new jar of cashew butter and it already has a pretty good dent in it ;)
I’ll be honest, I really cannot get enough of this stuff.
Since my Caesar salad dressing creation, I have also tried cashew butter on Ezekiel toast as part of my breakfast.
I loved it so much! This new breakfast combination will definitely be added into my breakfast rotation now!
Since WIAW is all about snacking, I am planning to add cashew butter into my snacks too!
What is your favourite way to enjoy cashew butter?
What is your favourite nut?
Have you ever made a salad dressing using nuts/nut butter?
Tomorrow’s post is all about tea! I am so excited! <3
