Okay, I have a little dirty secret to share, lol. I used to loooove mayonnaise. Of course, I knew it wasn't good for me, but I spread it on my sandwich anyway! Yeah, yeah, you can sit there and judge me.... but! now I have this perfectly healthy alternative! Make a big batch of it, put them in small jars and keep some in the freezer (yeah, I know, freezer again lol) and some in the fridge. You can use this as a base for, practically anything. As a spread for sandwiches, wraps, salad dressings, pasta sauces, and dips. Hence Superhero! This one is basic and ill add more recipes using this Cashew Cream.
boiling water for soaking, enough to cover the nuts
juice of one lemon
1tsp Dijon mustard
Soak the nuts in boiling water for 30 min. Drain and place it in a blender or NutriBullet. You won't reach that silky, creamy consistency in a food processor. It really has to be powerful. Add the rest of the ingredients to the nuts and 1/4 of a cup of cold water, and blend. You might need a little more or a little less water, so start adding a little at a time. Just enough for it to blend and turn into a cream. Don't worry if it seems a little too thin, it will thicken once you refrigerate it. If you want the cheesy flavor you can add a teaspoon of nutritional yeast. That's it!! Depending on what you're using it for, you can add more lemon and zest, herbs, miso, soy sauce, spice.... anything, really. Enjoy!
Hey there! I’m Victoria.
I always thought of my diet as "healthy" until I learned about plant based lifestyle. It opened doors to so much more variety of foods I never had the chance to enjoy. The countless benefits it provides for us and the environment. It simply is the best diet for our health and the health of our planet!
My goal is to inspire people to eat healthy foods without the feeling of depravation.
Why plant based?
