Method

Soak 100 g ( oz) raw cashew nuts in water for at least 4 hours, then rinse well. Put in a blender with 100 ml ( fl oz) cold water and blitz on full power until completely smooth and creamy – at least 2 minutes. Add water for a thinner consistency.

Add salt, lemon juice and/or vegetable stock to taste to smooth out the cashew flavour when using in savoury dishes, or add vanilla extract, agave nectar, rice syrup or maple syrup for sweet dishes. Will keep in the fridge, covered, for a few days.
