Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a blender, combine all the ingredients until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as needed. (*if unable to soak cashews for at least a couple of hours, a “cheat” is to soak them in boiling water for as long as you can, even if it’s just a few minutes. This s to soften the cashews, but when soaking longer it also helps our bodies absorb more nutrients).
  2. Transfer to a bowl and serve with vegetable crudites, lentil chips, bread sticks or crunchy pita bread.
  3. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days
