Ingredients
  

  • 2 slices whole-grain bread or gluten-free bread, 2 oz total
  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • olive oil spray,
  • 3 heads romaine lettuce
  • 2 radish sliced paper thin
  • 2 tbsp chives chopped
  • 2 tsp capers drained
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • salt
  • pepper
  • lemon wedges, forserving
  • 1/4 cup microgreens optional

For the Vegan Caesar Dressing

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice, fresh
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp capers drained
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Rub the bread slices with the cut side of the garlic clove and slice the bread into cubes.
  • Spritz the bread cubes with olive oil and bake until crispy, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Make the dressing: In a high-speed blender, place the cashews, garlic, lemon juice, mustard, capers, water, and a few grinds of black pepper. Blend until creamy.
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to high.
  • Slice the romaine heads in half lengthwise, then drizzle with a bit of olive oil and pinches of salt and pepper.
  • Grill the romaine, cut-side down, until char marks form, 1 to 2 minutes. Gently flip the romaine and grill for 2 minutes more.
  • Assemble the salads with the grilled romaine and a drizzle of the dressing.
  • Top with the radishes, chives, capers, and croutons.
  • Sprinkle with the hemp seeds, microgreens, and red pepper flakes, if using.
  • Serve with the lemon wedges and the remaining dressing on the side.
