I’m writing this post a few weeks after returning to Ottawa but the next few days I wrote while I was in Jamaica. It was a very busy trip but this was a day I got to stay at the resort. Jewel Paradise Cove while my friend figured out our plans for the remainder of the week.  The resort posts the activity schedule on the app, on tv’s in the room, and on a screen in the lobby. I had seen that there was a resort tour at 11:00. I have stayed in many resorts and it usually the company that you booked with doing these tours. I liked that there was no need to wait for a specific tour rep and the hotel was doing this. My friend was out up and early for the garden tour. I slept in and went for breakfast at 10:30. I wanted my friend to come in the hotel tour with me because I have no sense of direction but we later discovered we weren’t getting each others text messages and I thought she was still on the garden tour.  I had received my friends text that she was disappointed there were no plantai

April 17, 2018 Vegan Nachos and Cheese Sauce


I saw this amazing Vegan Hollandaise recipe from www.hookedonplants.ca I had to get cashews to actually try it. I made a few changes using the ingredients I had. The result is so good it inspired me to write a blog post.

The recipe calls to soak cashews overnight I soaked them for 10 minutes. I also replaced the lemon juice with pressured cooked ginger lemon my friend made for me. I used curry spice, herbamare sea salt, and pepper for seasoning.


I put all the following ingredients in the magic bullet 

half a cup of cashews
1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
seasoning

After blending it was too runny so I added another 10 cashews and a tablespoon of nutritional yeast



The texture is great except I should have soaked the additional cashews

To make tortilla chips



heat a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil in a pan (I used olive this time coconut in the past)

fold corn tortilla (365 by whole foods is my preferred tortilla) into triangles and fry for a minute


I can't get over how healthy this sauce is it tastes very indulgent. I will likely use it instead of mayo in the future.

Enjoy
