Creamy Citrus Dressing: Recipe for Sunshine!


So here in VT we are battling some Spring thunder storms, crazy weather patterns and even a call for hail tonight – it’s enough to make anyone yearn for warm weather. Luckily, I KNOW Spring sunshine and Summer are right around the corner! Which means time to lighten up, slim down, boost your energy!
 Screen shot 2013-02-27 at 12.21.08 PM
Now, before you roll your eyes at the word, “salad,” try this raw vegan recipe for SUNSHINE salad dressing below. It’s SUPER simple, requires only a couple of minutes and a blender, and packs a powerful punch (especially with the jalapeño – but you don’t have to add it if you don’t want to)!

Creamy Citrus Dressing

1 small avocado, peeled and pitted
1 cup orange juice (freshly squeezed!)
1/4 plus 2 tablespoons lime juice (also freshly squeezed!)
1 handful cilantro
1 green onion, white and 1 inch of green, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped shallot
1/2 small jalapeño
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
In a blender, add the avocado, orange and lime juices, cilantro, green onion, shallot, jalapeño, and salt and blend until smooth. With the blender running, slowly pour in the olive oil, allowing it to emulsify for a thick, creamy consistency. Season to taste with pepper.
Makes 2 1/2 cups
Pour over a big bowl of fresh greens, top with sprouts, nuts, or whatever you’re craving!

Why doctors {AND lADY GAGA} believe everything from bad backs to depression can be cured by HOT YOGA

Joseph Encinia has an incredible body. His honed, muscular physique is worthy of an Olympian. But it is what he can do with it that is most astonishing. We are chatting in a lobby of the Radisson Hotel, at Los Angeles Airport, when he asks: ‘Do you want me to do full Locust?’
He lies on his front, arms sandwiched beneath his body. Slowly, he raises his legs, at first to about 45 degrees, so yes, he looks a bit like a locust. Then the legs continue to rise, so they are vertical and beyond, until his knees bend and he places his feet on top of his head.
His body forms  an almost perfect circle. As if this wasn’t enough, he gracefully hoists himself up on to straightened arms. I feel I should clap – but I’m simply too gobsmacked. We are not watching a circus act, and Joseph isn’t a contortionist. He is a yoga teacher.

And more remarkable than this act of superhuman bendiness is that just eight years ago the 27-year-old Texan was confined to a hospital bed having suffered heart failure, a side effect of the medication used to control juvenile arthritis.

Raw taco shells that RAWK!

Ok SO - you saw the pictures earlier this week - here they are again WITH the recipe. Enjoy everyone. I sure am...

These will for sure be part of the June yoga retreat. I have worked up a taco flavor and a few others - caraway and simple herb which are awesome just for lunch on the go! I am listing a 1/2 recipe here which made 10 tortillas for me... a manageable amount in one dehydrator. If you want to go for it - just double or triple what is below. The shells will last for ever if you dry them crispy ( for tostadas!)  - about a week in the fridge if you leave them with a little bend.

1.5 C golden flax seeds
1/2 C raw sunflower seeds
2    C filtered water
1    T minced onion
1    t  minced garlic, chili powder
1/2 t  cumin
1/4 C or little less nama shoyu
1    T  poppy seeds
         sea salt and pepper!

1. Combine flax, sunflower and water - refrigerate 10-12 hrs or until the water has been absorbed

2. place mixture into a food processor - add the remaining ingredients ( except poppy)  and blend for about 5 minutes. Add the poppy last - blend to combine - salt and pepper to taste.

3. using an offset spatual, scoop 1/4 cup of the paste to a teflex sheet and spread into a 4" round.. Dehydrate at 105* for 1 hr or until slightly firm. ( if you are making tostadas - just let them continue to dry). When you are able to peel them from the teflex do -and flip. Let dry a touch longer so that they are pliable but not sticky.

4. To form into taco shell shape, take a teflex sheet and wrap around a rolling pin or cylindrical shape ( paper towel rolls work well). Secure the wrap with a piece of tape or tooth pick that you can stick through the paper towel roll. Dry until crisp! and then enjoy!!

Springtime SPROUT Salad w/ Ginger Dressing

Yes - Spring has sprung here in Vermont and life is good. Seeds are in the ground, the mudroom has transitioned into the sprout room! With that I am thinking light and this amazing salad caught my eye. Looks like dinner tonight!
This salad is easy to make, as proven by this light, fresh and visually stunning combination. Soaking the goji berries makes then juicy while also diluting their flavor, resulting in a taste that borders on a sweet cherry tomato! {I KNOW!! I am not a goji berry fan either - but eaten this way - I can not get enough.}​. Feel free to sub in your favorite in-season veggies here- there are very few rules in salad making!!!

1/2C apple juice
2T    miso paste
2T    peeled fresh ginger root minced ( I like it pressed with a garlic press)​
2Lg  medjool dates, pits removed, soaked in just a little water to soften, minced
1T+1t apple cider vinegar

*blend everything together until smooth. Leftovers will keep for about a week refrigerated. Makes 2/3C

1/4C gogi berries
1C    hot water
1Lb  mixed greens or baby lettuces
1/4lb sunflower sprouts ( or sprouts that you have in the fridge)​
6      English radishes ( mild ones) sliced paper thin
A few pinches of minced fresh garden herbs such as thyme, tarragon or basil
Ginger dressing!​
Edible garden flowers!! ( OPTIONAL - you can get these at Whole Foods if yours are not ready yet!.. I like to  plant nasturtiums in my garden just for salads. They grow anywhere and give a nice little pepper to your greens!)​

​*place the goji berries in a small bowl or glass container and pour the hot water over them. Steep for 30 minutes or longer until berries plump; Strain.
*In a large salad bowl, toss together greens, sprouts, radishes, soaked goji berries and herbs. When ready to serve, gently toss with as much ginger dressing as desired, mixing with your finger tips to avoid bruising the greens. Garnish with the flower petals and serve immediately. Serves 4-6 or if I am eating 1 BIG bowl of greens for me ;) ​
