Savoury Cashew Spread

This recipe is a staple and has many uses. You can use it as a spread, a dip, a sandwich filling, or bake it as a dairy-free ‘cheesy’ topping on a pizza or lasagne. Absolutely delicious!

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 heaped teaspoons arrowroot or pure cornflour
  • 1 and half cups raw cashews
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan (unrefined pink salt)
  1. Place nuts in food processor and blend until fine.
  2. Place cold water in saucepan on stove. Add arrowroot and whisk while it is coming to the boil. This makes a thick, smooth paste.
  3. Add the arrowroot paste to the food processor with the ground nuts, salt and paprika. Blend.

Note: Himalayan salt it available from health shops. It has not been bleached and is actually good for you because it is full of minerals.
