Caesar Salad with Avocado and Chickpeas and Kombucha Recipe

Rise and Shine Smoothie

Homemade Almond Milk
Vega One Chocolate 
Swiss Chard

Blend & Enjoy!

Brewing Kombucha

Filtered Water
4-5 bags of Organic Oolong Tea
1 c. Organic Cane Sugar

Kombucha Scoby
1/2 c. kombucha from the previous batch

 Bring  approximately 3 c. of water to a boil and remove from heat 
add the tea bags
steep tea bags for 10-15 mins.
add sugar while tea is steeping and stir until dissolved 
this will make a concentrate

Let cool to room temperature then  pour the cooled tea and more filtered water into gallon jar leaving head space for your scoby and a 1/2 c. of previous kombucha batch
Also..leave space at the top of the jar to allow for breathing room after the scoby has been placed in the jar

Lay the Scoby on top and then pour 1/2 kombucha over it 
(Be sure that your new brew is room temp before adding your scoby or else it could kill your it)

Cover the opening with a cloth or paper towel that permits airflow and secure with rubber band
wrap the jar with a towel and place it in a quiet area so that it is not disturbed
I keep mine in the cupboard
Ferment for 7-14 days
Taste test until desired ferment is achieved
Then remove scoby and 1/2 c. of liquid for next batch and bottle the rest

After you bottle your kombucha you can add ginger and/or berries to flavor and help to make it fizzy
Let it ferment for 2-3 days more on the counter and then place in fridge & enjoy!

Be sure to sterilize all equipment and containers to keep your scoby healthy and mold free !

Second Ferment

I added fresh ginger and a blackberry to each bottle

Caesar Salad with Avocado and Chickpeas

romaine lettuce
diced tomato
diced avocado

Caesar Dressing

3/4 c. raw cashews
fresh or dried basil to taste
1 T. nutritional yeast
3-4 garlic cloves
1/4 t. Himalayan salt
1/4 water
1/4-1/3 c. lemon juice
1/4 t. dulse flakes
lots of cracked pepper

Blend in high speed blender like a Vita Mix until smooth & creamy  
add more water if needed for desired consistency
this dressing will thicken after it sits awhile
