Maple Tahini Dressing

I eat salads pretty much on a daily basis. In general I tend to use olive oil and vinegar (balsamic or apple cider) as my dressing. However, sometimes I do like to make the effort of whisking together a few ingredients for a change of pace.
This one is super delicious – sweet and slighty nutty!

“Cheese” Sauce (dairy free)

Sometimes, I miss dairy.

But since discovering nutritional yeast, I really don’t miss it so much anymore!
So what is nutritional yeast? Well, it has a nutty, cheesy flavor, and comes in either flakes or powder form. It is rich in vitamins (b-complex, folic acid, zinc, and more) and many brands are fortified with vitamin B-12. The brand I use is Bob’s Red Mill which comes in flake form, however when I can find it I do prefer the powder version.
