Vegan Caesar Salad with Homemade Croutons


Description

A vegan Caesar salad made with a healthy caesar dressing and homemade croutons, this recipe has it all. It has all the tanginess and creaminess that you would want and expect from a traditional caesar salad, but this one is completely plant-based.


Ingredients

Scale
  • Romaine lettuce leaves
  • Vegan “chicken”-style soya chunks
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Vegan parmesan cheese
  • Pinch of salt

Caesar Dressing:

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 12 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp capers
  • 1 tsp caper brine (optional)
  • ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. For the caesar dressing, blend all the ingredients with ½  cup of water until smooth and leave to the side.
  2. As for the homemade croutons, slice your bread into cubes and lightly toss in olive oil and salt and bake until crispy and crunchy for around 10-15 min at 200C/400F, moving them around halfway through. Slightly stale bread for works perfectly for this.
  3. Place the chopped lettuce leaves with the soya chunks in a bowl and mix in the caesar dressing evenly.
  4. Top with the homemade croutons and a few grated slices of vegan parmesan cheese before serving.
  5. Sprinkle with an extra serving of black pepper if desired.

Vegan Caesar salad is a healthier, ethical version of its traditional predecessor. So are the Easy Vegan Chickpea “Tuna” Sandwich and Vegan Pasta Alla Vodka!

Comments

    • They are often sold at vegan/vegetarian stores (or even big supermarkets, depending on where you live!). Plain soya chunks can also be found in Asian grocery stores and then cooked accordingly to resemble “chicken” flavor. You could use whatever is available in your area!
