Thought that cashew nuts only had a place as a snacking nut or in cashew chicken stir-fries? Think again! These soft, sweet buttery nuts can be used to make ultra-flavorful spreads, soups, milk and more. They’re great for those following a dairy-free, plant-based, or paleo diet (and they’re pretty tasty for the rest of us, too).
Cashew Cream Cheese
Soak cashews in water overnight to soften them. Then, drain them and blend them up with some lemon juice, salt, and a splash of water until they’re super smooth and spreadable. It doesn’t get easier than that!
