Sauces and Dips

Wow your guests with this tasty homemade herb and garlic cashew dip. With just 5 simple ingredients, you can whip this up in just 10 minutes.

Time: 10 mins (plus 30 mins for soaking)
Serves: 10


  • 200 grams cashews
  • 200-250 mls cashew milk
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 100 grams of mixed herbs (basil, parsley, dill, mint, etc.)
  • 1tbsp apple cider vinegar


  1. Place the cashews in a bowl and pour boiling water over them until they are completely submerged. Allow to sit for 30 minutes or until the cashews are soft.
  2. Drain the water from the cashews and add them to a high speed blender or a food processor before adding in all of the other ingredients. (Start with 200mls of cashew milk, adding more if it appears too stiff once you begin to blend.)
  3. Blend the mixture until you get a smooth, creamy, mint coloured dip, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender or processor as needed.
  4. Serve with crackers, fruit, chopped vegetables or nuts! (It’s also delicious as a pasta sauce!)
