Raw Broccolini and Celery Divan

My mother used to make me broccoli divan when I was a little girl, since everyone was eating chicken divan. It is a definite comfort and oddly enough my husband has the same nostalgic feelings towards it. Since we are no longer eating dairy and trying to eat more raw, I put a new spin on it! Enjoy!

1 bunch of broccolini
2 stalks of celery
1 or 2 large button mushrooms
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds (soaked)
1/2 cup of hemp milk
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon of flax seeds
1 teaspoons cumin
12 almonds (soaked)
small sprinkling of chopped rosemary
dash of white pepper
Celtic sea salt to taste

Chop the broccolini and celery and place in a bowl of water with salt (about a teaspoon) and juice from 1/2 a lemon. Place in the fridge and allow to soak for about an hour. In a food processor combine the sunflower seeds, hemp milk, nutritional yeast, mustard, turmeric, salt, and the remainder of the lemon juice. Blend until smooth. After an hour, drain the broccolini/ celery and transfer into a new bowl. Chop the mushroom and add to bowl. Pour the sauce onto the vegetable mixture. In a small food processor or grinder mix flax seeds, cumin, white pepper, almonds, rosemary, and salt. These will be little "bread crumb" flavor clusters that you can scatter around the top.
