Lemon Cilantro Cashew Kreme Cheese Dip

 

I’m really proud of this recipe because I made raw cashew butter for the first time with my new food processor, which I love love love! This blog post by The Healthie Foodie has great pictures that walk you through how to make your own raw cashew butter in a food processor. Trust me, you need the pictures. Then, I added my leftover green chutney I had in the freezer. Since the chutney wasn’t fresh, it was a bit less spicy, which is a good thing since I’m bringing this to a new year’s party and everyone has different spicy preferences. The main ingredients in the chutney are cilantro and lemon juice, and the cashew butter adds a rich fatty texture and tangy flavor that resembles cream cheese. Whenever I’m eating a rich fatty dip, I like to use a cucumber slice for a refreshing contrast and because they have a nice a crunch.
