This sauce is life. Seriously. If you’re after a quick condiment to take your meal up a notch or ten, make this. It may look like a simple mix of basic ingredients, but the combination is ahhhmazing. It’s a savoury cashew cream with lots of lime and coriander, producing an exquisite sauce. Not only that, it makes an awesome dip for corn chips or veggie sticks too!
I actually created this recipe while writing my new cookbook, Family Favourites Made Easy. It was designed specifically to give especially the dairy free and vegan people a creamy alternative to accompany the Black Bean Tacos and the Enchiladas in there. However, we couldn’t quite squeeze it in, so I’m sharing it here instead for all to make! Please don’t pass on it if you’re not dairy free, it is SO good. Trust me.
So what do we need to make this luscious cashew sauce?
There are only a handful ingredients in this cashew sauce and the Thermomix makes light of blending it up in to a lovely, smooth texture.
- Lime juice
How it’s done
It’s so simple! First it’s important to soak the cashews, this will give you the creamiest outcome. Not for long, just half an hour in boiling water. After that, we drain the cashews, add everything to the Thermomix bowl and blitz. Done! That’s really all. And you then have this magical flavour-packed sauce. I’ve shared a zoomed in shot of the sauce below with the process shots, as I wanted to show you just how creamy it is!
