Description

Creamy, rich, and decadent, Cilantro-Lime Cashew Cream! Use this velvety non-dairy cream sauce over tacos, tossed into gluten-free pastas, or to marinate meats.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup of cashews
  • 1 cup boiling hot water
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, packed
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt or salt to taste
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime

Instructions

For Hot Recipes:

  1. First, add one cup of unsalted, raw cashews to a high-speed blender like a Vitamix. Next, add one cup of boiling hot water. Set aside for 10 minutes. This step will help soften the cashews.
  2. When ready, add the spices, kosher salt, and cilantro to the blender—process on high until a thick and creamy green sauce forms. Enjoy.

For Cold Recipes:

  1. Soak the cashew in cold water overnight or for a minimum of five hours.
  2. When ready, add the spices, kosher salt, cilantro, zest, and juice of the lime to the blender—process on high until a thick and creamy green sauce forms. Enjoy.
