Asian Lemon Ginger Tamari Dressing

The sauce goes great with your favorite sautéed (or raw) veggies and a grain like brown rice or quinoa making it a truly nutritious power meal. The raw ginger, garlic and lemon make this packed with health benefits from detoxification, to reducing bloating, better digestion and increased energy. Using Nama Shoyu's gluten-free tamari is basically like a vegan/soy free soy sauce. You can also opt for liquid coconut aminos. Use toasted sesame oil instead of olive oil for added flavor.

Lemon Tahini Dressing

Spoon this tangy dressing over cooked broccoli, green beans, salad or poached fish. Tahini is a paste made from ground, hulled sesame seeds used in North African, Greek, Iranian, Turkish, and Middle Eastern cuisine. Tahini is served as a dip on its own or as a major component of hummus. Not only are sesame seeds an excellent source of copper and a very good source of manganese, but they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fiber. I often use it instead of mayo on sandwiches and dip my crunchy veggies into it as a quick snack.

Fresh Asparagus Caesar Salad

Vibrant Method “Approved Recipe” sourced from A Food for Thought.

There’s something wonderfully exciting about seeing a recipe that completely changes the way you think about food. This is a new take on the classic Caesar salad using asparagus as the "greens". Classic caesar dressing incorporates anchovies (loaded with vitamin A, calcium, and potassium) as the main flavor component, however, if you are completely freaked out by the idea of having to chop up the little fillets, you can use a little Worcestershire sauce , but I think it’s better to go for the real deal. Your brain and eye-sight will thank you!
