I am a mom of 4. I love to cook and try new recipes.
Every once in awhile a new recipe is tried and the family often responds with "mom..it's a keeper" meaning add this one to the family recipe book. So here I've compiled them all in one spot so they're easy to get to and add to. Hope you enjoy them as much as we have, and maybe they'll be keepers for you as well.

Ceasar Salad veganized :)

We have slowly been transitioning over to Vegan and tonight my 9 year old daughter and I made this to go with the stuffed bell peppers.  It was actually really good, thanks to Angela Liddon at Oh She glows.  This was really good.  I would suggest starting with less lemon juice and tasting it as you go, my husband is not too fond of sour, so I we used less in the recipe.  I think it would also be really good with some vegan worchestershire sauce added for a little more depth.  But it's a great recipe to build off of.  And the vegan parmesan was absolutely outstanding!

Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing

1/2 c. cashews, raw
1/4 c. vegan parmesan (see recipe)
3-6 T. lemon juice (we like it less tart so we use 3T)
2 T. olive oil
1 garlic clove
1/2 t. sea salt
black pepper
1/2 c. water

In a blender - add lemon juice, water and olive oil.  Mix well.  Then add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.

Vegan Parmesan (this is really good)
1/2 c. sesame seeds

2 T. nutritional yeast
1/2 t. sea salt

Toast sesame's until lightly browned.  Add sesame's, nutritional yeast and sea salt to blender and blend approximately 30-60 seconds until right consistency.

Toss salad dressing with chopped up romaine, add croutons if you like (of course regular croutons would change the recipe into a no vegan, vegan recipe, does that make sense?)
