Procedure

To make the Vegan White Bean Caesar Dressing:  Combine all ingredients in a blender.  Puree until smooth.  Add more water, if needed, to reach a pourable consistency.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups

Chef’s Tip: If using canned cannellini beans, rinse thoroughly before using.  The miso and nutritional yeast provide healthy, plant-based “umami” flavor, replacing the egg yolks, anchovy, and Parmesan cheese that are used in a traditional Caesar dressing.
