Cashew nuts

Cashew Spread

Cashew Spread
A nice fresh spread for bread, dip, or vegetables. Cashews are rich sources of dietary minerals, including particularly copper, manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. As well as thiamin, vitamin B6 and vitamin K, Iron, potassium, zinc, and selenium are present in significant content. Cashews (100 grams, raw) contain 113 mg of beta-sitosterol.
Serves: 1¼ cups
  1. Place the nuts in a blender and process until they become a fine powder. Add ¼ cup of the water and process for 1 minute. Stop the blender and scrape the bottom. Add the lemon juice, oil, agave nectar or honey, mustard, salt, ground red pepper if using, and the remaining ½ cup water. Process until very smooth.
  2. Pour into a saucepan and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until thick. Allow to cool 10 to 15 minutes. Store in a tightly covered jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Recipe Tips:
Only ground cashews will thicken the spread without adding starch. If you want to substitute Brazil or other nuts, add 1 tbsp arrowroot or tapioca starch flour to the mixture in the blender so it will thicken when you cook it.
If you want to keep this spread for up to 2 weeks, you may want to use scalded jars.
