Creamy, vibrant and herby cashew sauce is amazing with roast vegetables, or with just about anything really.

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight or for the day
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, approximate
  • 2 leaves large spinach
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast, optional
  • 1-2 tsp kelp flakes, optional
  • Salt, to taste


  • Drain and rinse the soaked cashews, then add everything to a blender or food processor and whizz until smooth. If you have a high speed blender this will take 10-20 seconds. You can still achieve a smooth sauce with a food processor, you'll just need to spend a few more minutes on it and stop and scrape down the sides a few times.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • The sauce will thicken a bit on standing, and will keep refrigerated for a few days if you don't scoff it all immediately.
  • Serve with mixed roast vegetables and brown rice or quinoa for a satisfying and healthy meal.


Preparation time doesn't include soaking time for the nuts.
