ADAPTOGENIC CAESAR SALAD WITH MEDICINAL 'PARMESAN'



Contributor: Brianna Beard

A nutritious spin on a classic, this Adaptogenic Caesar Salad by Brianna Beard is the perfect healthy alternative to bring to a holiday gathering or to indulge in between all the rich and delicious dishes of the season.

This is a crowd pleaser! This salad is creamy, flavorful, fresh, medicinal and satisfying! Cashews are the best nuts to replace any kind of dairy item, instead of mayonnaise or egg yolk for your traditional caesar dressing, cashews offer that rich creamy consistency. The miso paste takes place of anchovies. Miso is a fermented food that provides your gut with healthy bacteria, it is also full of B vitamins, vitamins E, K and folic acid. The beautiful flowers on top are not only edible, they are also medicinal! Borage flowers and leaves are used for fever, cough, and depression. Borage is also used for a hormone problem called adrenal insufficiency and a great blood purifier.

Since your traditional Ceasar dressing comes with anchovies from the sea, I thought I would use Pearl powder to follow that theme. Thank you mother ocean for this beauty enhancing ancient health secret! Pearl powder is calming, used for longevity and skin regeneration. The "parmesan" crumble is not only mouthwatering, it supports the health of your brain with a dose of Lion's Mane. If there is one thing we could all benefit from it's enhanced brain function. Hope you enjoy!!

My fondest memory of childhood was my first trip to Hawaii. Everything was so vibrant and fresh. The first time I tasted a mango I became obsessed with food in that form, simple and unprocessed. I’ve gone through every food phase, from vegetarian to vegan to pescatarian to completely raw. Through those experiences I have discovered I need flexibility in order to maintain balance. So my approach now is MOSTLY plant based with medicinal herbs and adaptogens infused into as many meals as possible. The food I make is an exploration of the unlimited potential of nature, preparing foods with seeds, nuts, roots, stems, pollens, algae, seaweeds, fungi, sprouts, leaves and flowers!
