The day started out bright and early at the Carmel Mission -
|Beautiful spring flowers.|
|On the way.|
|Heading back home to feast.|
The star of the feast was the ham.
|Honey baked ham.|
|Rice pilaf, corn and carrots.|
|A large salad with a side of avocado slices and cheddar cheese.|
What did I make?
|Dip for the vegetables.|
|A little bit of everything.|
My niece's plate:
And every family dinner should end with lots of this -
Every family dinner should end with lots of love - not heart shaped pieces of ham - just in case anyone was confused on that point :-).
Veggie Dip (Vegan)
1 cup of Tofutti sour cream
3/4 cup of Red Star nutritional yeast
2 Tbsp. of Earth Balance margarine
3 Tbsp. of water
1/2 tsp. of yellow mustard
1/4 tsp. of garlic powder
1 pinch of tumeric powder
1 pinch of salt
cracked black pepper to taste
Put all of the ingredients in a sauce pan on medium simmer. Whisk until everything is combined and the sauce is smooth. Add more water if necessary to achieve desired consistency. If the sauce gets too thick just put is back on the stove and whisk in a bit more water.
This is just a basic starting off point for this dipping sauce. Feel free to tweak it for your individual tastes. It is a great recipe to have in your repertoire since it is great for Vegan's and/or anyone who is intolerant of dairy products.
