Today, for the first time, I felt an inspiration to make a salt-free dressing that is as well low fat. The second thing I wanted to try was the stalk celery in a dressing to know whether I can taste it there and whether it makes the dressing salty.
So I created these delicious raw vegan kelp noodles with radishes and a dressing that was simply wow for a salt-free and low fat dressing. If you are not used to eat raw foods and you still eat many processed foods and need many taste enhancers in your meals, try my second version of it rather. But if you are looking for a just great dressing that is super healthy, give it a try. Now I know that this is nothing new in the raw vegan world, but I discovered a whole new dimension with this. And I will be recreating this dressing often.
Ingredients (raw and organic):
Version 1 (salt-free and low fat)
kelp noodles (or cucumber or zucchini noodles)
a bunch of radishes
3 Tbs hulled hemp seeds (super high in Omega 3)
1 carrot, medium size
1 Tbs nutritional yeast
half red ramiro sweet pepper
1 – 2 cm piece of chipotle (optional)
pinch or two smoked red paprika
half lemon (not juiced)
spices (optional) or garlic or dried onion
Wash the kelp noodles and let them soak for 15 min in the filtered water. Before use squeeze out the excess water.
Now you blend all the ingredients and put them on your koodles (kelp noodles) or zoodles (zucchini noodles) or coodles (cucumber noodles) to which you add radishes cut in small pieces and grated cucumber with skin (if you use an organic cucumber). Voilà a delicious salt-free and low fat dressing has been born in which you really don’t taste the stalk celery (unless you want to and put more stalks in it). If you put the dressing on kelp noodles, wait for 10 min at least so that they have time to soften.
I divided the dressing for two meals. On the next day, I wanted to bring the dressing to the next level and created a Version 2 by adding a tablespoon of peanut butter (which is not raw, I know, but is soooo good) and a dash of Tamari. And I was in heaven and you’ll be too.
