In my never-ending search for nut-free, seed-free, low/non-fat recipes, this recipe was inspired by juleskess’s Fat Free Guacamole! To me, this light and low/non-fat (if you use chia it is low-fat; if you don’t use chia it is non-fat) dish is a cross between refried beans, guacamole, and salsa. It even kinda reminds me of lentil stew. Sounds weird, I know, but it’s true.
Many of the ingredients are optional in this very versatile recipe. The beauty is in the texture and the ability to adapt it to your favorite tastes.
I ball parked the measurements. Use more or less to satisfy your desired texture and flavors. Hope you enjoy!
This is an adapted recipe I saw on TV years ago (probably FoodTV).
I was looking for a lowfat, low cal salad dressing that was NOT a vinaigrette (not a fan) and cobbled this together from several recipes. The consistency is very thin, which may bother some folks, but helps it hit all the nooks and crannies of your salad. If you’re not concerned about fat, you might increase the amount of tahini or throw in an avocado or olive oil. This would also work nicely as a marinade for veggies or zucchini pasta.
NOTE: Do your coworkers and household members a favor and keep a breath mint at hand. This stuff is potent!
This was mostly an experiment on what to do with the broccoli stems. It came out wonderful so I thought I’d share it with you! I’m not sure if you’ll agree on the name though :)
This is from Soul Vegetarian’s Cookbook. I love this dressing!! Enjoy with a nice green salad of red head lettuce, avocado, carrot pulp (from the juicer), cucumber, broccoli, tomato, raw pumpkin seeds, fresh pepper and celtic salt! Yummmmm!!!
