I’ve been using my Vita-Mix a lot lately for more than just green smoothies…soups, dressings, puddings…and to make THIS MOST AMAZING RECIPE!! I really don’t even have words for how much I love this. I was thinking that I would make it for Bella because she is cheese obsessed. So, I poured it over some quinoa noodles and she didn’t even realize it wasn’t “real” cheese. I was thrilled that she liked it so much.
And then I became a woman obsessed. I dipped flax crackers in it. I dipped red peppers in it. I put it in my salad. I plan on spreading it in a nori roll. It’s just that good. If you don’t make this, you’re crazy.
1 cup raw cashews, soaked for 2 hours and rinsed ½ large red bell pepper ¼ cup water 2 tablespoon lemon juice 2 tablespoon nutritional yeast (find this in the bulk section or in condiments…it’s not ‘technically’ raw) 1 tablespoon tahini 1½ teaspoon sea salt 1 clove garlic 2 teaspoon onion powder (or a small slice of onion or 1 Tbsp of green onion)
Blend all ingredients until creamy (a high powered blender works the best…but if you have a regular blender, just blend it for a long time. It should be completely smooth). Add more water if it is too thick.
