  • 1 cup cashews
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 tsp cooking oil
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Begin by placing the cashews in a bowl and covering by one inch with room temperature water. Allow to sit for a minimum of one hour.
  • Meanwhile, sauté the onions in the oil over medium high heat, stirring occasionally until the onions become caramelized (about 7 minutes). Add the powdered cumin and curry powders and saute the mixture for another minute until the spices become fragrant. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Once the cashews have finished soaking, drain the water from the bowl and place the cashews in a high powered blender, along with the water, lemon juice, sautéd onion mixture and salt. Blend on high for about 30 seconds until smooth. At this point adjust the salt to your preference, and add a little water if you prefer a thinner consistency.


  • note that the hands-on prep and cooking for this recipe is less than 10 minutes. The total time listed includes one hour for soaking the cashews.
