Many of you on twitter will know that I have been on a detox recently. What entails you might ask? Well it's basically anything that doesn't include wheat, salt, sugar, dairy, alcohol and caffeine. So what can you eat? Lots of things. To keep it short, it involves lots of water, fresh juices and goat's cheese and yogurt. Here's 2 recipes that I made up to keep this detox tasty and easy.
Cheat’s Caesar Dressing
1tbsp Light Tahini
½ tsp Minced garlic
½ tsp Marigold Vege Stock powder
1½ Tbsp Vegan Mayo
2 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
2 tbsp Olive Oil
Dash of Tobasco Sauce
1 tbsp Honey
Grated Goat’s Cheese
Whisk well. If you find it too thick, add bit of hot water till preferred consistency. I use this for all sorts of stuff. For example as a replacement for egg to bind crab cakes.
Crab Prawn Cakes
4 potatoes boiled, cooled and mashed
3 shallots chopped
2 red chillies chopped
handful of chopped coriander
1 portion of above Caesar dressing (best thicker in consistency, so don’t water down)
big handful of raw king prawns chopped coarsely
2 tins crab meat
Mix all well and make into whatever size patties you want. I usually go for smaller ones about 1 inch thickness. Toss in fine polenta/corn meal and then shallow fry in olive oil. Medium heat till deep golden brown on both sides. I find that if you refridgerate them first, they fry better.
Serve with steamed veg.
So what do you think? It's tasty that's for sure and according to a friend who I've passed this recipe to, she reckons it's easy and delicious! If anyone is interested, I might post up more recipes. Cooking's a pleasure for me so with food like this, detoxing is super easy!Tweet
