With most of us staying at home and avoiding multiple trips to the grocery store, it’s easy for certain items to run low. Take dressings and condiments, for example!
Instead of worrying about making another outing to get more, put those DIY skills to work and make your own at home!
Here are some super easy and VERY delicious recipes for condiments, sauces and dressings:
CREAMY AVOCADO DRESSING:
In a food processor, add ½ an organic avocado, 1 tbsp. lime juice, 1 tbsp. water, 2 tbsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. sea salt, 1 tbsp. hemp hearts, a few sprigs of organic cilantro (to taste), and ½ clove of organic garlic. Blend until smooth, and top your salad or pasta!
SPINACH & BASIL PESTO:
In a food processor, blend 1 handful of washed organic spinach, 1 handful of fresh washed basil, ¼ C almonds and pine nuts (mixed), 1 clove organic garlic, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. sea salt, 2 tbsp. olive oil, and blend. Keep adding olive oil and blending until a fairly smooth consistency is created. Use on a wrap, sandwich, pasta, and more!
BLUEBERRY CHIA JAM:
In a small pot over medium-high heat, add 2 cups of organic blueberries, 1 cup of water, and 2 tbsp. of organic maple sugar or stevia. Reduce berries to a simmer until cooked down, and blend in a food processor. Add 1/3 C chia seeds, mix into berry mixture, and add to a jar. Keep in fridge for a couple of weeks – add to your toast in the morning!
VEGAN CAESAR DRESSING:
Soak 1 cup of organic cashews overnight. Drain, and blend cashews with 1/3 C olive oil, 2 tbsp. lemon juice, 1 clove organic garlic, 1 tsp. sea salt, 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard, and blend well (add some water to mixture if too thick). Top your salads with this delicious mixture!
In a large mason jar, add ¾ C olive oil, ½ C red wine vinegar, 1 tsp. minced garlic, 1 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp. oregano, 1 tsp. parsley, 1 tsp. honey, 1 tsp. black pepper, 1 tsp. basil, and shake well before refrigerating and before serving.
