Happy SaturYAY! Gorgeous day in Montreal today! It’s finally summer & I’m ECSTATIC! (I desperately need a tan though. HELP?!).
IN THE SPIRIT OF TANNING, let me tell you munchkins about the BRIGHT YELLOW SITCH IN MY KITCH THIS MORNING. Totallllly whipped, or should I say, whisked up, a Gingery-TURMERIC Yogurt Dressing!!!! Woah, uhm, yep, I tasted dressing at 6:45am. Oh well. It’s not weird or anything, right? EVEN IF IT IS, what’s done is done & I ain’t even mad bro. I mean… SHE TASTES HEAVENLY. In fact, I actually kinda want more. On toast. NOW.
Organic extra-virgin olive oil.
Raw organic honey.
Grass-fed organic Greek yogurt.
Organic virgin coconut oil.
Garlic powder. Ginger. Turmeric. Cayenne. Sea salt & freshly ground pepper! BASICALLY, IT’S ALWAYS SPICES FOR DAYS WITH KELLY IN THE KITCH!
Sounds DELISH, right? And isn’t it like the most beautiful thing ever when things turn out EXACTLY AS THEY SOUND? I know!!!! & this is exactly one of those SITCHs! So get ready for her my loves, she’ll become a classic (just like all my other 828483827262 dressing concoctions!).
OHHHH & she’s also gluten-free & it’s EVEN totally possible to make her vegan too! All you gotta do is sub that honey for some pure organic maple syrup & BOOOOM!
AND LASTLY. TURMERIC. ‘NUFF SAID. I’ve seriously gone on & on about its benefits like a trillion times with you babies (in other blog posts), so PUT THAT SEARCH BAR TO GOOD USE!!!!
Ladies & gents, I present you with my Beautifully-Bright Gluten-Free/Vegan/Clean-AF Gingery-Turmeric Yogurt Dressing a.k.a. That-Heavenly-Dip-Spread-Dressing-Marinade-Oh-&-It-Don’t-Get-More-Yellow-Than-This!
OKAY, so I broke this baby down for you, ergo, I tempted the EFF outta you! And, now it’s time for me to stop being a selfish tease & to tell you how to whip this babe up!! Are y’all ready for this?
My loves, YOU WILL NEED:
- 2 tbsp. of organic extra-virgin olive oil;
- 1 tbsp. of organic virgin coconut oil;
- ½ cup of grass-fed (or not!) organic Greek yogurt;
- 1 tsp. of raw organic honey;
- 3 tbsp. of freshly squeezed lemon juice;
- 1 tsp. of garlic powder;
- 1 tsp. of ground ginger;
- 1 tsp. of ground turmeric;
- ¼ tsp. of cayenne pepper;
- Sea salt & freshly ground pepper for seasoning!
AND, to make your lives super-duper-über easy, I CONCOCTED A DRESSING THAT DOES NOT EVEN REQUIRE YOU TO TAKE OUT YOUR BLENDERS!!! WINNING, RIGHT? Seriously though, this is like the easiest thing to put together, even your kiddies can do it! (Or, at least help you with it!),
All you munchkins have to do is combine all your beautiful ingredients in a metal mixing bowl or a glass container & whisk the eff out of ‘em until a beautiful thick, creamy & luscious dressing consistency is obtained!
P.S. I actually only added the lemon juice in at the very end because I found the dressing was a little too thick for my liking! If you’re into really thick & creamy dressings, you can totally omit the lemon juice, or just do 1-2 tbsp. to still give your dressing that citrusy taste all while maintaining that texture! Whatever floats your boats, my loves!
Oh & like a lot of my dressings, this babe can actually double, triple & quadruple as a dip, spread or marinade, which basically means she should be a staple for you!!!! A.K.A. KEEP A JAR OF HER IN YOUR FRIDGE AT ALL TIMES. I mean, it really does not get more versatile than this!
And which one of you munchkins does not like SITUATIONS THAT FACILITATE YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE? I mean, is that even a question at this point? Lawlz! Let’s be honest, we all adore when we can whip up a meal in like 10 minutes with stuff we’ve got ready & BY READY, I MEAN READY TO BE DEVOURED, in our fridge!
THAT’S IT LOVIES, YOU’RE DONE!
OH & FOOD PORN!!!
