Not ready to let go of summer? Enjoy this pesto-flavored, rich, tangy, cheesy and creamy dressing that is so lively and delicious, plus it’s a snap to make. Due to the high starch of the cashews, this will thicken over time in the ‘fridge, so add a little water or non-dairy milk to thin it out if you don’t use it right away. (Or enjoy a nice, thick dressing.)
1 cup cashews, raw and unsalted 2 tablespoons pine nuts 1 cup water 1 - 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 loosely packed cup fresh Italian basil ½ cup Italian parsley (just the leaves, not the stems) 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast 1 tablespoon minced garlic 2 teaspoons mellow white or chickpea miso paste ¼ teaspoon cayenne powder Salt and pepper to taste
Blend the cashews, pine nuts, water and lemon juice until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again until smooth.
