If you have been looking for a light whole foods plant based plus oil free dressing to flavor your next Asian or Thai inspired bowl? Or perhaps you need something creamy to add to your next vegetable stir fry – well this Ginger Avocado dressing is it.
Light, gingery, lemony and with avocado which adds a vegan creaminess like no other veggie can – in my opinion. 5 ingredients makes this vegan no oil added dressing easy to make. Just put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth! You will have a avocado ginger dressing just like that – so easy!
At first taste, you might think this tastes very gingery – so if you feel that way, let the dressing rest for a few hours – up to 24 hours – and by that time the ginger has become less overwhelming and everything has time to chill nicely for a perfectly light lemony with a touch of ginger avocado dressing!
I created this bowl for topping my asian inspired bowls with like this Asian Grilled Vegetable withs Miso Vinaigrette – but it would also make a nice dip for vegetable kabobs or even a light salad dressing with some toasted chickpeas or crunchy almonds.
Adding lemon juice gives this whole food plant based avocado dressing a little ‘shelf life’ in the refrigerator but due to the nature of avocados browning quickly – I recommend eating or freezing within 5 days.
Yes, you can freeze this! I love freezing my avocado dressings in small freezer safe containers and then thawing to add to a bowl. A word of caution though, do not microwave this when thawing! A warm avocado dressing does not taste very good! Let sit on your counter for a few hours or in your fridge all day. If you forget to put it out to thaw (which I always do) I microwave in 10 seconds increments and keep a careful eye on it!
