Soak 1 cup of raw cashews in a pot of water, covering with about an inch of water, for at least 1 hour. Pour the cup of raw cashews, drained of excess water, into a blender or food processor. Add the juice of 1 whole lemon, 2 heaping tablespoons of “Braggs” nutritional yeast, 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic (or more if you’re anything like me!), salt and pepper to taste, and about 1/4 cup of water. If you find that your mixture seems to thick, add in a tablespoon of olive oil or small bits of water until desired texture is reached.
If you want an additional pop of flavor, try adding some of your favorite spices, hot sauce, or even some pesto! You can add just about anything to this mixture and create a whole new meal.
Warning*** this is seriously so yummy that you may be tempted to eat the entire mixture with a spoon! Don’t worry, no one will judge if you do!
