Hollyhock Yeast Dressing (Revisited)

People have been known to buy the first Hollyhock cookbook JUST for the famous Yeast Dressing. We’ve revamped this much sought after dressing to make it a little lighter without compromising flavour.  It rocks out on grains and steamed veggies just as well as it does on salad.

Makes 2 cups

  • ¾ cup Engevita flake yeast (or any nutritional yeast brand)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup tamari (can be gluten free)
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 large cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup grapeseed or sunflower oil

In a blender, combine yeast, water, tamari, vinegar and garlic for one minute. With the blender on high, remove the centre of the lid and SLOWLY drizzle in the oil. Stop the blender as soon as all the oil has been added. Keep in a sealed jar for up to 2 weeks.
