Raw Fridge Staples

Published July 29, 2011 by Polana Fowdrey

Here are a couple of useful sauces to make and keep in the fridge.
I had to dash out this afternoon, so I whipped them up quickly before I caught my train.
They are both good for making salad dressings, spreading on crackers, dipping vegetables in… etc, etc…

Raw Tahini
Soak 1 cup sesame seeds for a couple of hours. (Be careful not to soak the seeds too long or you will waterlog them and the tahini won’t last as long.)
Drain and blend with 1/2 cup water and some salt & pepper
It’s that easy! It will last about 4 days in the fridge.
This Raw Tahini comes out really pure and white and is perfect for making Raw Hummus! go on, soak some chick peas now…

Green Cashew Cream
This uses the pulp from making Cashew milk.
1 cup cashew pulp
1 tomato, chopped
1 tsp maca powder
1 tsp spirulina
1 tsp agave syrup
1/2 cup water
Blend everything together. The Spirulina gives it a bright green colour which makes it look like it’s doing you a lot of good, which it is!

A great base for salad dressings or dips. Again, keep in the fridge and use within a week.
