I was craving homemade pizza again, so I made it on the weekend. This time I did half mushroom and local pepperoni and half red pepper, pineapple, and local bacon (because I didn’t have ham.) And it was fantastic. In an effort to make it a more balanced meal I had some salad with it.
This is a recipe I adapted from my friend Katie’s, mostly because I didn’t have all the ingredients at the time, and it worked out, so I stuck with my version of it. She called it Goddess Dressing, but I call it Katie’s Dressing– which I guess could be a compliment to her!
Katie’s Dressing (adapted)
(vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free, can be vegan)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp tahini
2 1/2 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1/2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce (watch out for wheat in your brand, if you want it to be gluten-free)
1/2 tsp honey or sweetener of choice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 300 g package soft tofu (I like Sunrise brand, which is non-GMO)
pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth, adding water until desired consistency is reached. Makes a bottleful (I think the bottle I use is about 350 mL.) Tofu is supposed to be used within 5 days of opening, so I’d recommend using this up within that time frame. But it is so good you will want to eat salad every day until it is done.
Chai was disappointed again that the blender didn’t mean a smoothie, so he only thought the dressing was so-so. But I’ll use the rest of the package of tofu in a smoothie– he’ll be happy then.
