Dairy-free Cashew Peso Recipe

Directions:

1. Combine everything except the olive oil in a food processor and pulse 5-10 times to break down the cashews.

2. Process the mixture while drizzling in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. You’ll need to stop and scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula once or twice. Add more olive oil to get the taste and smooth texture you desire.

3. Serve over gluten-free, whole grain or regular pasta, mix with cooked grains or use as a dip for steamed or raw veggies!
