Vegan Recipe - Caesar Dressing & 3 Minute Parmesan Cheese

Do you love Caesar Salad? The traditional version includes non-vegan ingredients like Worcestershire sauce, anchovy fillets, eggs, and Parmesan cheese. So when our very own Alicia (who you might know as a frequent Change The World Wednesday participant) agreed to be this month's guest chef and sent me this recipe ... well ... I'm pretty sure that even Caesar, himself, would approve. It includes good-for-you ingredients and a healthy "Parmesan Cheese". I can't wait to try it out!

A huge thanks to Alicia for sharing this recipe with us. I hope that you and your family enjoy it:

Vegan Caesar Dressing

Vegan Caesar Salad Ingredients

1/2 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup 3 minute Parmesan Cheese (recipe follows)
6 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Pinch of black pepper
1/2 cup water

Bullet Blender

Blend and process until smooth.
Adjust seasoning as necessary.
Dressing will thicken when it is refrigerated and you can add more water to reach the consistency you want.

3 Minute Vegan Parmesan Cheese


1/2 cup toasted Sesame Seeds
2 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast


Toast sesame seeds until lightly browned then add all ingredient to a blender and process for 30-60 seconds.
