There are so many out there that are lactose intolerant and dairy sensitive. Some of you are wanting to lead a vegan lifestyle because of the environment or because of health purposes. For whatever reason you are not wanting to include dairy in your diet this cream is for you!
I use this cream for pastas and desserts- anything that needs a hint of creaminess in it!
1 cup of unsalted cashews
1 cup of water
Pasta with cashew cream:
1 tbsp garlic
Pinch of salt and pepper
1 tbsp of parsley or oregano
2 tbsp local honey
1 tsp of cinnamon
4 tbsp dark chocolate
To make the cashew cream soak a cup of cashews in a cup of water for three to four hours. If you're able to soak them overnight, then I would also recommend that.
Put the cashews in a food processor with 3/4 cup of water. If the cream isn't creamy enough then add two tbsp of water at a time until it reaches the consistency you desire.
Add in the other ingredients depending on if you want a sweet or savory option. I recommend spooning it into any recipe and tasting it first.
