Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) raw cashews (see step 1 for prep)
  • 1/2 - 1 cup(s) plant-based milk (such as soy or oat)
  • 1/2 of a red pepper
  • 2 tablespoon(s) nutritional yeast
  • 1 clove(s) garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon(s) chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
Instructions
  • If you have a high-powdered blender you can skip straight to step 2. If you have a regular blender, you may want to soften the cashews first to ensure they blend smoothly. To do this add the cashews to a small pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes until the cashews are very tender. Drain and rinse with cold water before using.
  • Add the raw cashews, 1/2 cup non-dairy milk, the red pepper, nutritional yeast, garlic, lemon juice, chili powder, and salt to a blender. Combine until smooth, stopping to scrape the sides as needed, and adding up to 1/2 cup more non-dairy milk as needed to reach desired consistency.  
Notes
Nut-free: to make nut-free sub the cashews for 1 1/2 cups raw sunflower seeds. Boil the sunflower seeds for 15 minutes, drain, rinse, and proceed with the recipe.
Soy-Free: To keep this recipe soy-free, choose almond or oat milk rather than soy milk.
