Island Fruit Topping: Detox recipe 15 of 21May 7, 2012
Welcome to 21 Days of Detoxing with clean, whole, real food – boy do I have some good stuff in store for you! From now until May 13th you can find a new recipe here each day. You can wait until the next time I run this program live, or get yourself the DIY version available here.
Plant-based foods are often square pegs, forced into a meat-lover’s round peg world. Beans? Let’s make burgers out of them. Almonds? We can make it into milk! And soy…? Apparently we can make that into anything we damn well please, from tofurky to corn dogs to ice cream. Some of these substitute uses are perfectly natural and healthy. Others are super questionable.
Today I’d like to turn the tables.
Because the greatest lesson I’ve learned from plant-based cooking is that a dressing or topping can really be the star of a meal. It can take a salad from boring-hate-this-feel-deprived to delicious-amazing-want-some-more! It can turn plain rice into a delight. In short, this is something the plant-based world has to offer, that no slab of meat can do better!
So whether you’re eating meat, fish, or tempeh – give this beautiful recipe a try.
