Here’s my go-to recipe for a Cashew Cream that is well-suited for any savory dish you need cream in.
I made this using my new Vitamix blender. I have made a version of this multiple times in a regular blender and it will work for sure, but just be prepared to blend a lot and still end up with a texture that is not quite perfectly smooth.
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1½ cups fresh water
- 1 vegetable bouillon cube
- 1 clove garlic
- Place raw cashews in a bowl. Pour boiling water over and let sit for 1 hour.
- Drain cashews and place in a blender. Add fresh water, bouillon cube and 1 clove of garlic. Blend on high until very smooth. Set aside until ready for use.
