SWEET COFFEE MUSTARD DRESSING
Looks like a lot of ingredients, but mostly seasoning and flavorings go into making this fat-free dressing as special as it is! Deep, dark, bold, complex! Like a full-bodied fine wine, it possesses elements that give it an aged flavor! Use over salad or dessert!
Makes about 2-1/2 cups
1 c. OAT MILK ORIGINAL by PACIFIC FOODS
1 c. apple cider
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1/4 c. Balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1 T. TART CHERRY CONCENTRATE (ULTRA 5X) – I used DYNAMIC HEALTH brand
2 T. Bragg Liquid Aminos or soy sauce
1-1/2 t. guar gum powder
1 T. instant espresso – I used BUSTELLO brand
1 T. Bragg Nutritional Yeast Seasoning
1 t. smoked paprika
2 t. jarred minced garlic
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
1/4 t. ground allspice
1 t. salt
fresh grind black pepper to taste
1 t. liquid smoke
2 T. prepared yellow mustard
In small saucepan combine OAT MILK, vinegars, sugar, cherry concentrate and Liquid Aminos. Turn heat to medium. Stir well.
Immediately add guar gum before the liquid gets too hot – just warm will do. Whisk rapidly till totally dissolved and liquid begins to thicken.
Add remaining ingredients, whisking after each addition to thoroughly incorporate.
Reduce heat to low and cook, uncovered, about 15 minutes to round out the flavors.
When cool enough, pack in covered container and refrigerate. It will thicken more after refrigerated.
Drizzle over your favorite salad of greens.
Or, make a fat-free dessert of tender prunes topped with sushi ginger and a little liquid from the ginger, then drizzle with SWEET COFFEE MUSTARD DRESSING.
