Equipment

  • High-speed blender

Ingredients
 

  • ¼ cup cilantro, roughly chopped ($0.14)
  • 2 tbsp lime, juiced ($0.24)
  • ½ cup raw cashews, soaked ($0.86)
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar ($0.11)
  • ½ tbsp avocado oil ($0.10)
  • 1 clove garlic ($0.04)
  • 1 tsp coconut or cane sugar ($0.02)
  • ½-1 tbsp jalapeño, seeded and diced ($0.05)
  • ¼ cup water ($0.00)
  • Sea salt to taste ($0.02)

Instructions
 

  • To begin, soak the cashews overnight in room temperature water, or for 1-2 hours in boiling water. You can omit this step, but the consistency of the sauce will be more grainy.
  • Next, drain the cashews if you soaked them. place all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Blend until creamy, about 2-4 minutes.
  • Serve this sauce over salads, buddha bowls, enchiladas, wraps, or anything you can think of! Transfer it to a mason jar to store in your fridge.

Notes

  • For the creamiest results, use a high-speed blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec. It's completely worth the investment.
