"Glory Sauce" (Modified)

BEST SAUCE EVER!!!


This sauce is not my original recipe, but I am a HUGE fan of Glory Sauce.  The only problem is, in its original form, it's an oil-based dressing (which most dressings are)...and I don't eat oil.  So...I "healthified" it, and honestly, I like it even better this way, which I didn't think was possible.  The original recipe is served at the Fresh Tracks Cafe, at the White Water Ski Resort in Nelson, BC, Canada, and can be found in their Whitewater Cooks cookbook, which is full of amazingly yummy recipes.  Anyways, I replaced the refined oil content of this recipe with some creamy, natural oils, and the results are pretty amazing!  It's the most versatile sauce ever, fantastic drizzled on pretty much everything.  I eat it over rice bowls, salads, Asian dishes, and I even drizzle it over baked potatoes.  So here it is...


First off, I use this Braggs' brand Natural Soy Sauce Alternative rather than actual soy sauce.  It's a great, healthy alternative, especially if you have certain dietary restrictions...and no, I'm not affiliated with Bragg's brand in any way, I just really like this stuff.



Anyway, here's how it's done...combine the water, soaked cashews, nutritional yeast, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, garlic cloves, and tahini in a high speed blender, until smooth.  Transfer to a pourable dressing bottle and cool in the fridge to let the flavours blend.  The more they blend, the yummier this sauce is!  I like it better on day 2, 3, 4, and so forth.

And that's it!  Serve over everything under the sun, and try not to drink it all it once!

Enjoy!

  1. What is the difference between the Braggs and coconut Aminos? Also where do you find this to buy?

    1. Coconut Aminos would work perfectly! Braggs is similar. You can get Braggs at Superstore (and Safeway I believe). It comes in a bigger container for less $$$ at Superstore though. It's in the green isle with all the healthy options :)
      Good luck!

  2. Is there anything you can use as a sub for nutritional yeast? I can't use it so just wondering.

  3. Hmmm, I’ve never been asked that question before to be perfectly honest, and I personally haven’t tried anything else, but google suggested Marmite or Brewers Yeast. I would do a bit more research before I tried either, as I don’t know anything about them. Sorry about that! The nutritional yeast really is what gives this sauce it’s flavour, so it would be a hard thing to sub out unfortunately...

  4. Me again, and I still haven't made this sauce! I got the cashews, but haven't gotten the yeast and the tahini. Where do you buy those?

    1. Superstore has Tahini :) I believe it’s in the Asian isle. Nutritional yeast you can get at a few places. Superstore used to have a good price, but they recently stopped carrying it. Bulk Barn is probably your least expensive option.

  5. I really love this recipe. It's a must have in my opinion.

Sweet Potato Waffles

Well, these are kind of my faves.  My family goes crazy for them, and they are requested multiple times per week.  It's awesome too, because they are so darn healthy that I don't mind accommodating the requests at all.  We eat them for breakfast, lunch and supper...often.  The amount of sweet potato I use varies greatly, depending on the size of sweet potato I'm using, or what I happen to have on hand.  I've used anywhere from 2-5 cups of sweet potatoes (cooked) and always get awesome results.  I started out using 1/2 a large sweet potato per batch, but lately I use the whole thing and they turn out the same as far as cooking time and consistency, I just get the satisfaction of knowing I'm packing more nutrients into each waffle and the batter ends up stretching farther and tasting a little more sweet and flavourful.  BONUS!
So here's how it's done... Combine sweet potato, apple sauce, plant based milk & honey in a high speed blender.

Chocolate Almond Truffles

If you're looking for a rich, creamy, decadent dessert, that is also quick, easy, and only has 5 ingredients (all of which you'll likely have on hand right now), please allow me to be your new best friend.  These truffles are vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free, and have a rich dark chocolate taste that you can indulge in guilt-free.  Although the title says they're almond flavoured, you really can make these truffles whatever flavour you'd like.  I've done peppermint, vanilla, orange...whatever suits your fancy / craving.  I've also rolled them in crushed nuts instead of coconut, but coconut remains my personal favourite.

So to begin, line a small bread board or baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Toast your coconut over medium heat until lightly browned and aromatic (around 5 mins), stirring frequently.


Transfer the coconut to a small plate to cool as you mix together your truffle ingredients.
Next, combine the cocoa powder, full fat coconut …

K-Balls

I have this wonderful friend whom I {sadly} rarely see unless she is serving me in some way.  She's a gem, and I love her to bits.  When my health problems came raining in on me just over a year ago, she went out of her way to bring me healthy meals and treats that were in accordance with my new plant based lifestyle.  One of my favourites were these little babies, which she altered a bunch from the original recipe, and which I've altered a bit more since, as I've eliminated a few more things from my diet.  These are enormous, delicious, filling, jam-packed balls of goodness, that we've lovingly named "K-Balls" in our house, after my friend.  They are entirely plant based, nut-free, and could easily be refined sugar-free if you substituted the chocolate chips out for something else.  I use dairy-free chocolate chips to keep the recipe plant based.

So the pictures kind of make these look like they're just regular little protein balls, but just to bring th…
