Cashew Herb Spread

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by rsarahl

This is an original recipe for a versatile spread that is great on sandwiches or smeared on a lettuce leaf for a quick veg wrap; equally easy to use as a dip for crackers and veg or thin down a bit and use as a "cream" accompaniment for baked tofu, fish, etc. Toss with pasta or rice for a fresh, protein rich, dairy free cream sauce. Would also be nice to dress potatoes for a potato salad... hmmm... the possibilities are endless! My version comes out light green and looks a lot like guacamole, tastes fresh and herby and has a creamy mouth feel. The miso and nutritional yeast add a nutty/cheesy depth that you notice but can't quite put your finger on... and the garlic adds a raw zip that is really nice if you like that kind of thing! I love, love, love that this is something I can make that has no added fats or oils. Hope you love it too! (12 servings = 2 Tbsp per serving)

This was wonderful! I don't know why but I got it very creamy without presoaking the cashews. I made it in my Thermomix where I have made nut butters before, so this was just kind of herbed nut butter and worked very well. First I powdered the nuts at highest speed, then added the other ingredients and processed at half speed until it was creamy. I will definitely make this again! Thanks for sharing!
