Vegan caesar salad

Mmm! I made some vegan caesar salad today, and it's quite good! So I'll share the recipe with all of you who read my blog. (anyone?)

Here's another Google image...

1 cup vegannaise (or other vegan mayonnaise)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 clove garlic (finely minced)
1 tbsp fresh ground pepper
1/8 cup nutritional yeast (or to taste)

1/2 loaf (or less) French bread (chopped into crouton sized pieces)
olive oil
seasonings (whatever you like, I like basil, oregano, nutritional yeast, dill weed, garlic powder and pepper)

3 heads romaine or 1 head iceburg lettuce (or spinach or other greens to make it healthier, but you won't get that classic caesar salad you used to get at restaurants)
chicken substitute (optional)

Mix first 6 ingredients (vegannaise through yeast), taste, and adjust to make it just how you like it.

Put the chopped bread on a cookie sheet. (they should  not be too crowded, there also should only be one layer, so if there's too much for that, make two batches) Then drizzle it with the oil, then mix that up, then add the seasonings and stir, then lay on one layer on the cookie sheet, and put it in a 350 degree oven. Stir occasionally. Once lightly golden and crunchy, let cool.

Cook the chicken substitute, and cut however you like. Then chop the lettuce. Then mix the lettuce, dressing, and croutons together, and lay the chik'n on top. Enjoy!

Also, I did more free hugging on Friday, and also on Saturday. (at Saturday market!) The people there were very friendly and we got lots of hugs.
