This is a very easy “dressing” that I have been making lately and mixing with brown rice. The flavored rice makes a great base for a bowl. I like to top mine with black beans, avocado, pickled onions, extra dressing and a little labneh. The recipe is very flexible, but here is the gist.
In a food processor or blender add:
- 1 small handful of cilantro roughly chopped
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/4 cup raw pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
- juice of half a lime
- 2-3 tablespoons of grapeseed, olive or canola oil
- enough water to blend and thin the dressing (I’d start with 2 tablespoons and add a little as you go if needed)
- salt to taste
Blend until smooth and add more oil or water to get it to a smooth consistency. I leave it a little thick if I’m mixing it with rice and thin it down to drizzle extra on top if I’m doing a rice bowl.
