Today’s perfect snack is here. I tried this recipe for the first time, and I have to admit it came out perfectly and so delicious, that I will make it tomorrow and the day after tomorrow and maybe in the weekend too :))
It’s similar to a cheese dip, its super creamy, filling and tastes like heaven. You can serve it with whatever you like, fresh veggies, as dressing on your salad, dip for oven baked sweet potatoes, or use it in cauliflower mash or potatoes mash.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ cup water
- chopped basil
- freshly-ground black pepper to taste
- Add cashews to a small bowl and soak in water for at least 2 hours. (This will allow the cashews to soften and make them easier to process.)
- Drain cashews of the water and add to a blender or food processor, along with garlic powder, lemon juice, salt, and ¼ cup of water. Blend or process, until smooth, adding additional water as needed, until the mixture is the consistency of dressing.
- Add the basil along with pepper to taste, and refrigerate until using.
It’s that simple!
