"Glory Sauce" (Modified)


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!

Modified "Glory Sauce"
By Lise-Anne Michel {Plum Planted}
Modified from Whitewater Cooks cookbook
Makes about 3 cups
Plant Based, Vegan, Paleo option, Gluten-free option, Sugar-free, Oil-free, Nut-free option.

1 1/2 c. water
1 c. cashews, soaked
1/2 c. nutritional yeast
1/3 c. soy sauce (or gluten-free liquid aminos)
1/3 c. apple cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic
2 T tahini

1. Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.
2. Transfer to a pourable dressing container and cool in the refrigerator in order for flavours to blend.
3. Serve. 


  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...

    1. Thank you! I'll just keep looking and experimenting! :D

  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.

Ban-Apple Smoothie

Quick post today to give you this refreshing Banana Apple Green Smoothie recipe!  And...I'm gonna give you the recipe, because how much can you say about a smoothie.  It's yummy, I promise... So I kind of have a process of how I blend my smoothies.  I own a Vitamix, which I love, and I use it multiple times a day.  I add the ingredients in a couple at a time and put it through multiple cycles.  Here's how I do it: Cycle 1: I start by putting the coconut water and the protein powder (if using) in the blender and putting it through a quick cycle.  See this post for protein powders I like. Cycle 2: Next I add the spinach and start a cycle.  Halfway through the spinach cycle, I add in the peeled bananas through the clear section in the top of my lid that pops off. Cycle 3: Once that is all cycled, I add the apples and the ice.  My vitamix has a setting with a snowflake on it, so I switch to that setting when doing anything frozen (ice or frozen fruit for instance).

Coconut-Cashew Tiger Ice Cream

Hope you all are enjoying your summer as much as I am! I have been DYING to write this post for a while now!  I am absolutely loving this ice cream recipe, and I know that it'll be a hit at your house too.  I have always been a fan of Tiger ice cream, and when we went plant based and dairy-free, I wasn't about to accept the fact that I might never taste it again.  I have been experimenting for a while now, doing a load of researching and looking for natural food dyes and gut health helpers, as well as ratios of flavours etc.  After lots of experimenting, the results are better than I would have expected!  The black liquorice ice cream is coloured with food grade, activated charcoal , which is great for gut health, and the orange ice cream is coloured with both sweet potato and a bit of turmeric to add not just colour, but also anti-inflammatory benefits and a little extra hidden goodness!  I can now honestly say, this one is a gooder!  I will even be bold enough to tell you
