Cashew Dip

We all have the friends who are vegans/gluten-intolerant/on some crazy diet, right?  When you're headed to a gathering where there will be people with nutrition needs, sometimes it's nice to be the one person to bring something everyone can eat.  Don't feel bad if you don't - most people make arrangements so as not to put anyone out - but I guarantee you'll be most appreciated if you do.

Cashew Dip

Serves: A group!     Time: Overnight     Difficulty: Not to hard at all - you just need patience


- 2 c. raw, unsalted cashews

- 1 T. white pepper (black pepper is acceptable)

- 1 T. garlic powder

- 1 lemon, juiced

- 2 T. apple cider vinegar

- 2 T. nutritional yeast

- pinch of salt

Note: You can also add optional flavorings like hot sauce, chopped herbs, or even chipotle in adobo.


Cover the cashews with water.  Let them sit overnight.

The next day, drain the cashews and put them in a food processor with all of the other ingredients.  Puree until smooth, adding in a little bit of water until you reach the desired consistency.

Serve with flat breads or vegetables.
