Almonnaise

Almonnaise
Adapted from Marilyn Diamond's book "Fit For Life"

1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 to 3/4 cup water
1 tsp nutritional yeast
1 or 2 garlic cloves, crushed
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp herbal seasoning
1 to 1 1/4 cup oil or 1/2 avocado with water
3 tbs lemon juice
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

Grind almonds in coffee grinder to a fine powder. Transfer almonds to blender and add half the water along with yeast, garlic, salt and seasoning. Blend well, then add remaining water to form smooth cream.

With blender on low, remove insert in top and drizzle in the oil in a thin stream until mixture is thick.

Keep blender running and add lemon juice and vinegar. Blend on low for one more minute, to allow mixture to thicken.

Refrigerate tightly sealed.

Herbed variation:
At the end of blending the almonnaise, add: 2 tsp minced chive or green onion, 2 tsp dried basil, some tarragon and dill and a handful of fresh parsley and cilantro. Yum!

Thank you very much for this recipe, Carmella!
I tried it today and it is delicious.

I have put a little bit less oil, since that seemed too much to me. And still, it was so yummy!

Carmella, please can you give some ideas about combining almonnaise with other dishes?

Hello Ramya! Welcome to our fammunity!

Oh, I love LOVE this 'mayonnaise'. I have been making it about once a week lately.; it is so versatile! You can use the almonnaise on crackers or with "sandwiches". (Try it on a piece of onion bread with a nice slice of tomato, sprouts, and salt and pepper! Mmmmmm) I sometimes like to put a few spoonfuls aside in a bowl and thin it with water to make it into a salad dressing. It's also super yummy thinned into a sauce to put on top of zucchini noodles or marinated veggies and quinoa or whatever cereal (if you still eat some cooked).

Hope you make yourself at home!

Blessings,
Carmella
