Happy Thanksgiving, Falling in Love and an Easy Basil Garlic Dressing Recipe
Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends. It’s coming up quickly and I am posting links to my favorite vegan Thanksgiving recipes below. Life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately. I’ve gone and fallen in love, and so my world has been flipped around.
Sometimes I wonder if I manifested a HUGE transition, much bigger than expected, with all my talk about life changes. But it’s all wonderful, so all good. I plan to be back posting a little more regularly soon. .. and I’ll tell you more about all this in an upcoming post soon too.
Always be Thankful!
I have lots to be thankful for. What are you thankful for? We know that giving thanks creates abundance and expansion, so appreciate all the wonderful people and abundance around you. I know you are surrounded by it too. We all are.
I wish you and yours a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving!!
I always make at least one big amazing salad, and ideally more. Encourage people to eat salads by making them beautiful and then everyone will feel so much better, energized and filled with life as well as satiated and full!
Some of my Favorite Dressings:
There ares also some other wonderful dressings from the list of recipes linked above, such as Tahini Miso dressing, Coconut Lime dressing and Sesame Ginger dressing, etc.
Below I’m posting a recipe for one that is my new favorite and it is super easy to make too!
Basil Garlic Dressing Recipe
¼ cup Olive oil
3 Tbsp Lemon juice
1 Tbsp Agave
8 Basil leaves
1 to 2 Garlic cloves
dash of Salt and Pepper
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
So easy! and I have a variation that I love. It’s made by simply adding a bit of mayo. My special healthy vegan hemp oil mayo recipe that is. I love this recipe and usually make it with hemp oil but it can be made just as easily with olive or avocado oil also.
Here’s how to make the thicker creamy version:
Creamy Basil Garlic Dressing
Add 2 Tbsp Hemp Oil Mayonnaise to the above recipe and blend until creamy and smooth.
It’s so easy and so much healthier to make your own dressings at home.
Join us at the Pumpkin Patch!
Before I go I want to share our little stop off on the way home at Cheer Farms. Come join Mom & I in the pumpkin patch.
There are so many types of apples. Have you ever tried snow apples? They are pure white, tart, crisp and delicious.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from me, Mom and our growing family here!
