  • 1 cup cashews, soaked ahead of time for several hours if possible – otherwise, soaked in boiling water for about 10 minutes
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • ground black pepper
  • pinch cayenne
  • water as needed
  • 8 oz fresh spinach, boiled until wilted; then drained and squeezed – yielding 1 cup once wilted

In a food processor, combine cashews, garlic, sesame oil, onion powder, salt, black pepper and cayenne.  Add a bit of water as needed/desired for good consistency.  Puree well.

Add prepared spinach and pulse.  Serve warm.
