CARROT MISO VINAIGRETTE FROM TRUE FOOD COOKBOOK BY ANDREW WEIL

If you’ve ordered green salads in Japanese restaurants, they have probably been topped with a version of this thick, brightly colored, highly flavorful carrot miso dressing.

It makes a welcome change from familiar vinaigrettes.

This dressing from Dr. Andrew Weil’s cookbook True Food (which I was kindly gifted after a visit to one of my favorite new restaurants, True Food Kitchen!) is SO DELICIOUS that it can jazz up just about any salad.

It can easily transform your favorite grain or lean protein (shrimp anyone?) as well.

Versatility and great flavor are the best things about this nutritious salad dressing – like many of the recipes from this mouth watering cookbook.

Blendtec vs Vitamix Review

A high speed blender, like a Blendtec or Vitamix can easily pulverize the carrots in this recipe, but a regular blender will work as well if you coarsely chop them and add a bit more water. 🙂

CARROT HEALTH BENEFITS

Forget about vitamin A pills. With this orange crunchy powerfood you get vitamin A and a host of other powerful health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging. Read how to get maximum benefits from this amazing vegetable.

1.  Improved Vision

Western culture’s understanding of carrots being “good for the eyes” is one of the few we got right. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the liver. Vitamin A is transformed in the retina, to rhodopsin, a purple pigment necessary for night vision.

2.  Anti-Aging

The high level of beta-carotene acts as an antioxidant to cell damage done to the body through regular metabolism.  It helps slow down the aging of cells.

3.  Healthy Glowing Skin (from the inside)

Vitamin A and antioxidants protects the skin from sun damage. Deficiencies of vitamin A cause dryness to the skin, hair and nails. Vitamin A prevents premature wrinkling, acne, dry skin, pigmentation, blemishes, and uneven skin tone.

4.  Beautiful Skin (from the outside)

Carrots are used as an inexpensive and very convenient facial mask.  Just mix grated carrot with a bit of honey.

5.  A Powerful Antiseptic

Carrots are known by herbalists to prevent infection. They can be used on cuts – shredded raw or boiled and mashed.
