Green onion and fennel “creamy” vegan dressing

close up fennel dressingHi Veggie Pawa readers! I’m so sorry it’s been almost two weeks since I posted something on the blog. I feel like I won’t be able to keep the same publishing rhythm I had during the autumn. Between looking for an apartment, looking for a job, studying, having a teaching training course and following a class at the YMCA to become a fitness teacher, I feel like I barely have any time (and/or energy) left to cook and workout!

I must admit, yep, I must admit that I underestimated the time it would take to publish a food blog! It’s a whole lot of work to cook, take notes of what I’m doing, take pictures, trying to arrange lighting, upload pictures, edit pictures, write some text (in english!) and finally publicize the post. But, hey, I have so much fun doing it, I won’t stop even thought I cannot publish as often as I would like!

So, here it is, finally, the dressing recipe I told you about almost two weeks ago. My friend Vanessa brought this dressing to our Twelft Night dinner and I simply loved it! I’m planning on doing it again tomorrow and serve it on a kale salad. Vanessa used Joel Legendre’s 4 saisons dans mes chaudrons tofu dressing recipe as a base and jazzed it with green onion and fennel. The result was divine!

Ingredients :

  • 1/4 cup silken tofu (or more, if you want it creamier)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or nut oil
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 3 green onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh or dried fennel leaves (to taste)

Directions :

Mix all the ingredients together until the dressing is homogeneous and creamy. That’s it!

On Twelft Night, this dressing was serve over a salad made of different kind of shoots, dried cranberries and endives. The flavour mix was really really good!

The day after Twelfth Night, I had some leftover dressing and, late at night, I really felt like having a veggie snack (yep, I get weird kind of cravings). I filled the mason jar that held what was left of the dressing with cauliflower, close the jar to give it a good shake, and then simply ate the raw cauliflowers with a fork! Hummm, it was yummy!
