thanks for the positive response to the cookie recipe i posted over the weekend! i`ve had several people ask me where they can find vegan white chocolate chips in ontario, and now i feel like such a tease since i can`t even source them locally myself... believe it or not, i`ve been hoarding the bag i received from kelly last summer in the vegan food swap!
so far i`ve been telling folks about veganessentials.com since i know they carry them,
but i`d love to share more options, especially those spots to get your
vegan white chocolate fix in person, so if you know of any other sources
(both in ontario and beyond), or if you make your own and have a recipe to
share, please let me know via email, on facebook or in the comments
section and i'll compile all the sources in an upcoming post!
today i want to share a delicious little salad that i whipped up for lunch. this one is raw, gluten-free and likely falls a bit more in line with healthy new year goals you may have set.
the star of this salad is kelp noodles, and i`m sorry to my local readers -- these are yet another ingredient that we can`t find in sudbury. (i get mine in toronto, usually in kensington market at either tutti frutti or essence of life organics, and i stocked up before having woodrow. if anyone is really interested let me know - i could probably spare a package.)
this salad is full of crunch: kelp noodles, carrot, cucumber & celery all tossed up in a rich, creamy dressing. perfect for lunch or would make a great dinner alongside some baked tofu & sauteed greens.
miso-tahini kelp noodle salad
2 entree or 4 side servings
1 bag of kelp noodles, rinsed
1/3 cucumber, seeded and diced
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 carrot, grated
2 tbsp hemp hearts
mix the noodles and the veggies in a large bowl and toss with the miso tahini dressing. serve and top with hemp hearts.
1 tsp miso paste
1.5 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp gluten-free tamari
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp umboshi vinegar (or rice vinegar)
dash of agave nectar
water to desired thickness
for the dressing, whisk everything together (it will be really thick) and then thin to your desired thickness by adding a little water at a time.
