Vegan Chic'n Caesar Salad

I am pretty much always in the mood for a big delicious caesar salad. The traditional caesar dressing is loaded with mayo and anchovies; foods I find especially nasty. I've crafted my own version of a traditional caesar dressing using vegan and diet friendly ingredients. 

Caesear Dressing: 
1/3 cup raw unsalted cashew nuts
4 cloves of garlic (peeled)
2 tbsp fresh rosemary
1 package light silken tofu
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
I tbsp capers
1 tbsp agave syrup
1 tsb mustard powder
1/2 tsb red chili flakes
1 tsp salt and pepper 

In a food processor combine all the dressing ingredients until smooth. Add more lemon juice/oil as needed.

Preheat the oven to 375

1/4 olive oil
3 cloves of garlic minced
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt, pepper, spice
old bread torn into bits

combine the oil, garlic and lemon juice mix well. Coat the bread in the mixture and place the bread bits on a backing tray. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

some roasted beets or other veggies of your choice
1 large head of romaine lettuce
1 cup of arugula 
1 small red onion

Mix the salad greens together, add the dressing, and mix well. Top with the croutons, seitan, and beets.
