When I first read about this sauce I knew it had potential! In the past at one of my Raw Food classes at Nourished Body & Soul by Deb K I learned that the cashew is a very versitile nut. The first time I had it was as a Mock Alfredo Sauce served over Kelp Noodles and I was hooked. I have not however been brave enough to try it out until I saw this recipe for Cilantro Cashew Cream Sauce and knew instantly I had to try it!
I was in luck, I happened to have all the items in my pantry or fridge as well so I knew it was a sign that I had to make this sauce! I am not using it for burritos as the recipe's main page is using it. I decided to use it another way. I decided to use it on a salad.
First I soaked my cashews like in the original recipe.
|I blended them in the vitamix and then added the other ingridients as stated in the original recipe.|
|This is the amount I recieved...a large mason jar's worth.|
|Then I prepared my salad by starting out with marinated Kale in lemon juice. I let it sit for an hour.|
|Then I used my new Spiralizer for the first time and cut some Zuchinni.|
|I added half of an avocado. Then I massaged them all together. |
Next time I plan on adding the avocado before the zuchinni.
|Next came for my seasoning..today's choice was Organic Kelp Noodles. |
I have to limit my salt intake and this gives me a nice substitution.
|Just for the heck of it, I added black sesame seeds. Think next time I want to add Poppy Seeds.|
So this was my dinner tonight, what did you eat and how Raw are you today?
