Butter Lettuce Wedges With Sunflower Seed Dressing, Pears and Tempeh Bacon [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
This take on a classic salad reminds me of many family dinners eaten out at The Brown Derby: a big, crunchy wedge of lettuce topped with a creamy dressing and sprinkled with salty bacon. My version subs tempeh for bacon and adds refreshing sweetness with juicy pears.

Butter Lettuce Wedges With Sunflower Seed Dressing, Pears and Tempeh Bacon [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan

Serves

4

Ingredients

Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 tsp. dried chives, or 1 Tbsp. fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped

Salad:

  • 2 large heads butter lettuce, cut into quarters
  • 2 ripe pears, cored and thinly sliced
  • Tempeh bacon, crumbled or chopped (exclude if going for 100% raw)

Preparation

  1. Add the sunflower seeds through the salt in a high-speed or regular blender and process until very smooth.  Add the chives and parsley and pulse a few times to incorporate.  Set aside.
  2. Place two butter lettuce wedges each in four bowls.  Divide the pear slices, the tempeh bacon and the dressing between the bowls.  Serve.

Notes

If the dressing is too thick, add water, a little bit at at time, to get the consistency you like.

I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.
