This dip is my latest obsession—I even dream about it. (You’ve been warned.) And it stars one of THE stars of the plant-based (vegan) kingdom - cashews. From creamy sauces to smooth dips to raw key lime pies, cashews are perfect in a huge variety of dishes. Plus they're nutrient-dense as well, which makes them 100% pure awesome!

Recipe from Radiance 4 Life.

½ cup raw cashews
4 oz. jar pimientos, drained
¼ cup nutritional yeast powder
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 medium-large cloves garlic, peeled
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon granulated onion
¾ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground cayenne

Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor (or good blender) until completely smooth. Serve cold or at room temperature with raw vegetables, baked tortilla chips, or raw crackers. This will store, refrigerated in an airtight container, for at least a week.

Makes about 1 cup of dip (4 servings); GF/SF/Blue/R (according to the health guidelines in my books)
