Oil-Free Basil Lover’s Dressing Recipe


This dressing is also oil-free. Yes, we need healthy fats, but I now prefer to consume them in form of whole foods- avocados, moderate amounts of seeds and nuts, etc. Oil isn’t a whole food- it’s processed and the fiber of the whole food is stripped out, even if the oil is unrefined and cold-pressed.

So check it out! Love, Kimberly

    Looking for a substitute for nutritional yeast, I am allergic to bakers and brewers yeast, as well as wheat, dairy, and peanuts. I see many of your recipes use this ingredient. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Your Books and recipes have kept eating fun and interesting over the last year, and helped me make the changes per Doctors orders! thank you, Laura

    I tried this recipe with and without the nutritional yeast – It’s delicious either way! It has a beautiful fresh, yet subtly earthly flavour. This is absolutely one of my favourite dressing recipes. Thanks Kim!
