Judy Barber's Rosemary Lemonette
This is a healthy alternative to vinaigrette, made with freshly squeezed lemon and immunoprotective, mood-enhancing and brain stimulating rosemary leaves. Of course, the more organic ingredients you can use the better so that your body has less detoxing to do from non-food chemicals. You’ll need a good blender and these ingredients:1 cup cold pressed virgin olive oil2-3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice1 tablespoon soy sauce, ideally tamari or shoyuI small piece of garlic2 teaspoons of flax seeds1/2 cup filtered waterThe leaves from a 3cm twig of rosemaryOptional: 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepperThe method is simple,1) Put everything except the water in your blender and blitz until smooth.Don’t worry if you don’t have any flax seeds. They are there to thicken the dressing a little so that it stays emulsified and doesn’t separate out into oil and water, but if you don’t have it you can just shake your dressing before you pour it over your sprouts and other salad.2) Once the mix is smooth, add the water and blend again briefly.3) Add further seasoning and/or water to taste and enjoy. The dressing keeps well in the fridge.
