  • 1 cup raw cashews (soaked in water overnight)
  • 1/2 cup plant milk or water (I used soy milk)
  • 2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 garlic clove
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil (I used canola oil) (optional)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (or other sweetener) (optional)
  1. Drain and rinse cashews. 

  2. Add cashews and all the remaining ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If necessary, add more water (in 1 tbsp increments). Scrape down sides as needed. 

  3. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed (e.g. adobo sauce for heat, lemon juice for acidity etc.).
