*All ingredients are organic.

2 1/2 cup cashews

1 cup cold water

1 cup fresh scallions, chopped

1 clove fresh garlic

1 generous splash of lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste

  • Add cashews and water to your food processor and let soak for 30 minutes.
  • Pulse to combine. 
  • Add scallions, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice and more water as needed to reach desired consistency. 
  • Dip can be prepared as thin as a salad dressing or thicker, similar to a hummus. 
  • Toss in a few chickpeas to thicken and for added fiber and nutrition.

Substitute scallions with fresh arugula, spinach or basil, or switch lemon juice with lime or orange juice for a fun, summertime spread.
