  • Add cashews to a bowl and cover with the hot water. Allow to soak at least 10 minutes.
  • Drain the cashews and dispose of the water.
  • Add the cashews, garlic, olive oil, honey (or agave), lemon juice and 6 tablespoons water to a food processor or blender cup. Process until smooth. Add more water if a thinner sauce is desired. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Transfer the dip to a serving bowl.



Tips and Techniques

  • If vegan, replace the honey with agave.
  • For a thinner sauce-like dip, gradually increase the water until the desired consistency is achieved.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use within 5-7 days.
