But before I sign off for the rest of the week, here are two more recipes for those awesome Chia Seed salad dressings. Enjoy!
Crazy Indian Chia Seed Dressing
1 cup Eden Extra Soy Milk
1 ½ Tbsp Chia seeds
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp white distilled vinegar
½ inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and diced
3 large dates (Medjool), soaked in water
¼ tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 pinch asafetida (optional)
1 pinch ground cloves
1/8 tsp mango powder (Amchur powder) (optional)
1 tsp salt (can use pink Himalayan salt)
¼ tsp pepper
If your dates have not been soaked yet, begin by placing pitted dates in a bowl and covering them with water. Set aside as you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Place all dressing ingredients, including soaked dates, in a blender and blend for at least 1 minute. Refrigerate to firm up.
