I have been making a lot of hummus and nut butters lately, they are such a great staple and complement to a lot of dishes. This Cashew and Sun-Dried Tomato Spread is definitely on of those recipes that is quick, easy, healthy and really delicious! It’s vegan and gluten free and packed with flavor.
I eat it as a snack with crackers or on a sandwich but also tasted great as a side to grilled veggies.
If you like what you see here, I think you will love these recipes:
- raw cashew nuts
- 8-10 sun-dried tomatoes in oil
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 shallot
- ½ lemon, juiced
- 5 basil leaves
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2-4 tablespoon water
Soak the cashews in hot water for one hour.
Drain the cashews and put them in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients except for the water and salt and pepper. Process until smooth scraping down the sides as needed and add water to desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste. Top with a little olive oil and red pepper flakes if desired.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
