And to end on, a tasty sounding recipe from Jennifer Bliss for a dressing that also comes with a lot of side benefits. I haven’t tried it yet, but like all the ingredients, so I’m sure it will get a thumbs up from me. And I have all the ingredients on hand, so I plan to make it today or tomorrow …..
This recipe for Carrot Garlic Dressing is a simple, flavorful, whole food, plant-based, raw vegan power-house! Because of the garlic and carrots, it provides a healing aid for those with stomach issues. The flavor is sweet, savory, bite-y, and tangy! One way I enjoy this dressing is with a veggie salad of mixed greens, tomatoes and peppers.
Each ingredient plays an important role and contributes to the health benefits and overall flavor, but let’s see what the garlic and carrots do specifically for stomach and gastric ulcers.
Stomach ulcers/gastric ulcers are sores/lesions that develop in the lining of the stomach and upper part of the intestines. According to the American Gastroenterological Association, roughly 4 million people have stomach ulcers, and 1 in every 10 people suffer from an ulcer at least once during their lifetime. Garlic and carrots are 2 whole foods that can help with these type of problems. Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center discovered that the antibacterial and antimicrobial properties of garlic may keep levels of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacterium in check, which contribute to the development of stomach ulcers. Carrots can do many good things for your stomach, too, including maintaining its health and preventing certain conditions and diseases.
- About 1 cup Chopped Carrots
- At least 2 TBS Tahini
- Juice of 1 Lime
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- 2 to 3 TBS Cilantro
- Water as needed
Put all ingredients into a high speed blender until smooth.
7/29/15 Update: I made this recipe earlier today….sort of just eye-balled the amounts, had to substitute lemon juice for part of the lime, used just a tad of water, and added at least a TBS of olive oil, and some salt and pepper and used it more as a dip or pate than a dressing. I liked the end product and will be making it again in the near future. I think it will be even better tomorrow after it’s had some time to meld. Very healthy! 🙂
