'the works' sauce {it's vegan!}

we're going vegan.

and this is my new vegan sauce.

i'm calling it 'the works'
after emily's favorite vegan wrap
at her local grocery in santa cruz.
emily has been vegan for almost a year,
so this recipe is dedicated to her.

'the works' sauce
makes 2 cups

combine all ingredients and blend until smooth:

1 cup cooked beans
{i use 1/2 cup chickpeas & 1/2 cup soybeans}
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup tahini
1/8 cup tamari
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
1 - 2 cloves garlic
1 tsp spike {seasoning blend}

this sauce is delicious on rice & beans.
make it 'the works' by adding
fresh spinach, purple cabbage, avocado,
salsa & cilantro.
serve in a bowl or in a tortilla.

it also makes a great creamy salad dressing.

to make this sauce regularly,
cook batches of chickpeas & soybeans,
combine them & freeze in 1 cup containers.

missing her

yesterday was missy's birthday.

last night,
returning from a fun roadtrip to utah,
with the just-past-full moon at our backs,
i was able to share her story
and this song with some new friends.

{also here}
i love you, sweet girl.

lo and behold

this month, i've been busy.
i have a couple new projects i'm working on.
{more on those later}

as a result,
some things are late
{new year's cards, coming soon!}
and others have been quite neglected
{ahem, this blog}.

this amaryllis, which i never potted,
just tossed into my basket of produce,
is bearing blooms of forgiveness.
it's all okay.
