All-purpose cashew cream is a basic vegan cream that can be developed further with a variety of ingredients – sweet or savory.
1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight *see notes
1/2 cup water (or less)
*1/4 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
- Place cashews and water in a high speed blender and mix until creamy
- Add more water, if desired
*Soaking the cashews overnight softens the cashews. Toss the soaking liquid and rinse the cashews after. If pressed for time, with a high speed blender like a Vitamix or equivalent, you can still get a creamy consistency without soaking.
