This is actually VEGAN! No animal based ingredients! So great! Perfectly good for a vegan diet too, as the cashews provide protein. I think it would be even better, with the addition of parsley & fresh chives or onion tops. I like using onion tops rather than the onion bulbs. The taste is milder, and the green color adds color to dishes.

Love this! Coincidentally, I'd just invented and posted a recipe for cashew-carrot hummus. The flavors of these two ingredients are so tasty together. A keeper!

So simple to make- so healthy! So yummy! I love it! All I have to do is learn not to burn the cashews :-) I am a cilantro fan so I loved that addition. Also, 4 oz of cashews by weight seemed like a huge amount, so I assumed it to be 1/2 cup. That worked very well. Thanks for this one!
