Avocado-Tahini Dressing

This looks like a yummy dressing out of the book, “Wild About Greens!”

IMG_0153

Avocado-Tahini Dressing

Makes about 1 1/2 cups…enough for 12 to 16 ounces of cooked greens, plus extra!

Pour this rich sauce over steamed or wilted greens, or any salad of raw greens.

1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and diced

1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)

Juice of 1 lemon

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

2 to 4 T. minced fresh parsley or cilantro, to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth.  Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water, as needed, to achieve a medium-thick consistency.

Stir 1/2 to 1 cup of the sauce into greens once they are done.  Transfer the rest to a covered container and refrigerate.  Use within 3 days!

Spinach or Arugula & Miso Pesto

This is a recipe out of Wild About Greens, Thank you Nava Atlas, it looks delish!

IMG_0153

Spinach or Arugula & Miso Pesto

Makes about 1 1/2 cups, enough for about 6 servings

The twist on this classic pesto recipe is the substitution of spinach or arugula for the customary basil, which, though yummy, turns brown quickly.  Miso is a salty paste of fermented soybeans (available at any natural food grocery, I get mine at Sprouts), makes a good nondairy stand-in for Parmesan cheese.

10 to 12 ounces spinach or arugula (regular or baby varieties), well rinsed

1/2 cup firmly packed fresh parsley leaves

1/4 cup pine nuts or walnuts

2 T. evoo

1 to 2 T. lemon juice, to taste (drop of lemon essential oil works well too!)

2 T. white miso, more or less to taste

5457841328639738

Freshly ground pepper to taste

Steam the greens until just wilted.  When cool enough to handle, squeeze out as much moisture as possible.  Combine greens with the remaining ingredients in the container of a food processor.  Process until the mixture is coarsely pureed.  Use at once and refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container, where they’ll keep for 2 to 3 days.

Enjoy!
