The story goes like this: We purchased some new knives at Wal-Mart. Nothing fancy, we just needed some new ones to eliminate cross contamination (gluten) from our old knives and because our other knives were barely cutting the butter! I was afraid of the new ones from the beginning. I remember telling Kyle at the store that I was nervous to bring them home. I have read that you are actually more likely to cut yourself with dull knives than with the sharpened knives but I was scared nonetheless. Wednesday afternoon I decided to make myself this yummy lunch:
carrot falafels. Jumping subjects for a second, I didn't love the falafels. I prefer the conservation burgers. If I make them again I think I will tone down the spices. Ok, back to my story. I always put avocado in my salad. You have to slice avocado to put it in your salad ~with a knife. It was a beautiful avocado! No gross spots, not one!
1/2 Cup raw tahini (you could use roasted but the nutrient value is less)
6 Tbs filtered water
4 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (I usually use half a lemon)
1Tbs nama shoyu which is unprocessed soy sauce, this has gluten though so I use Tamari which is a gluten free soy sauce!
1 Tbs green onion diced (I usse chives because I don't love green onion)
1tsp raw apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp garlic or ginger (optional-I've never used either)
just don't end up needing one of these! Have a great day!
