This plant-based cashew crema is great for serving with tacos.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews , soaked in water overnight
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Combine cashews with enough water to cover in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight, about 12 hrs. (This will soften the cashews to make them creamier when processed.)
  • Drain cashews from overnight soaking, then transfer to a blender or food processor. Add garlic, lime juice, salt and 5 tbsp water. Blend until smooth, 2 to 3 min.
  • Serve with roasted mushroom tacos.
