RECIPE: Savory Vegan Cashew Cream

RECIPE: Savory Vegan Cashew Cream

The one thing missing in many vegan recipes is something creamy. Vegans shouldn’t need to go without the cream in cream of mushroom soup, or without the creamy in creamy mac and cheese!!! Who’s with me?!

Enter Savory Cashew Cream! This super easy and delicious cream is wonderful for adding that missing element to any vegan dish. Add it to soups or pasta recipes. Drizzle it over salads or stir fry. This amazing cream sauce elevates any dish it’s added to. 

As a nutritional bonus, cashews are rich in magnesium making them an excellent food for building and maintaining bone health. 

Savory Cashew Cream 

  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 1 cup home-made veggie broth (more if you prefer a thinner consistency)
  • I tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1 clove garlic

  • Soak cashews in pure, filtered water over night or for at least two hours. 
  • Place cashews in a high-speed blender with the remaining ingredients. 
  • Blend on high until mixture is smooth, adding vegetable broth if you prefer a thinner consistency. 
  • Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. 
  • This recipe also freezes well!!

Do you pure the cashews with the water they’ve been soaking in?
