  1. Place your cashews in a small bowl and cover them with very hot water.
  2. Let the cashews sit in the hot water for 10-15 minutes to soften up.
  3. Rinse the soaked cashews in a fine-mesh strainer and transfer them to a high-speed blender.
  4. Add the water and sea salt. Place the lid on the blender and process on high for 45-60 seconds, or until the cashews are completely blended and creamy.
  5. Pour the sauce into a container with a lid. Serve immediately, or place in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.


To make a sweet version, add 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (or 2 Medjool dates) and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

To make a spicy version, add 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper.
