"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.

Sourdough Banana Bread

Mmmm...Banana Bread.  Who doesn't love it, am I right?!?  Even my child that absolutely hates bananas, LOVES banana bread.  And this is the kind of banana bread you really can feel good about eating because it's chuck full of healthiness!  Yay!!!!  Plus, if you have a sourdough starter and are into getting that yummy, tangy goodness into your gut, this is another recipe to add to your repertoire.  If you don't have a starter, there's modifications you can follow in my recipe tips.  This recipe is actually modified from my lovely friend Kelsey's Sourdough Banana Bread recipe.  She gave me permission to change a few things to make it conducive to my Whole Foods Plant Based lifestyle, so it is now completely free of refined sugar, oil and animal products.  So here goes...

My kids usually convince me to throw chocolate chips into the banana bread (I actually found some that are both dairy-free and sugar-free, but man are they expensive), but nuts or blueberries are al…

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 …
