Roasted garlic is a great addition to many dishes. Roasting garlic gives it a softer, mellower flavor that's rich and slightly sweet--unlike raw garlic which has a much stronger, pungent flavor

Print Add Add To My Grocery List


1 bulb garlic, separated into unpeeled cloves
2/3 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
1/2 cup raw almonds or 1/4 cup raw almond butter
3 pitted dates
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
1 large head broccoli


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roast unpeeled garlic in a small baking dish for 25 minutes or until soft. When cool, squeeze out the soft cooked garlic, removing and discarding the skins.

Blend the garlic with the non-dairy milk, almonds, dates, lemon juice, nutritional yeast and cayenne pepper.

Chop broccoli into bite-sized florets. Peel stems and slice them into 1/4 inch strips. Steam florets and stems for 8 minutes, or until just tender.

Toss steamed broccoli with desired amount of dressing.

I followed the recipe exactly, but didn't care for the vinaigrette at all. I'm anxious to try many more recipes from this site, though. I've read Dr. Fuhrman's books and I'm completely convinced that he is right about the SAD diet, toxic hunger and food addiction. I want to break free from all of it, and he will help me.

Made this for a bunch of non-nutritarians and they all loved it. I used Vogue Vegebase broth powder instead of VegiZest. Good simple recipe.
