Spinach & Cashew Cream Dip

Below is the recipe for the spinach dip that I mentioned in a blog post a few weeks ago.

It is a very easy recipe.  You could use the cashew cream base and change the ingredients to make other dips.  For example you could add some french onion soup mix to make a french onion dip.  I use this recipe to make my own gluten free onion soup mix.

Spinach & Cashew Cream Dip

  • 200g raw cashews

  1. Cover cashews with water and add the salt.  Soak for 8-12 hours.
  2. Drain the water from the cashews and rinse.
  3. Place the cashew into Bellini and process for 10 secs, speed 8.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend for 20 secs, speed 5.  Add more water as necessary to get the right consistency.
