Easy vegan caramel sauce...

Just when you think, that you can't enjoy some of the foods you loved, while still eating animal products. Well, again the plant world comes to the rescue! Caramel sauce mmm... You can whip it up in less than 15 minutes and it's less than 5 ingredients, all you probably have in your kitchen right now. My caramel sauce is rather thick one, more like a yogurt consistency than that of a runny sauce, but I prefer it that way, so it's not sliding off my toast ;)

Caramel sauce is one of those super versatile things, that you can enjoy in many, many ways, some of them (my favourite ones) are:
* drizzling on morning porridge
* spreading on toast, yes!
* adding to yogurt
* putting on ice cream 
* mixing into no-bake goods, like granola bars
* on top of breads, muffins and cakes
* stirring into hot coffee, chocolate and/or tea

How to make it...
- 200 g soft, dried dates
- 150 ml boiled, warm water
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp salt (or more to your taste)
- 1 tsp lemon juice

Soak the dates in warm water for about 15 mins. Add all the other ingredients and blend (with that soaking water!) until very smooth. Transfer into a container with a lid, keep in the fridge, consume within a week. Yes, it IS that easy!
