Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: vegan


  • 1 cup cashews, raw or dry roasted, unsalted
  • 1 medium garlic clove
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Add all the ingredients to a food processor. Process until you get a fine crumb (see photos above). Store in an airtight container in the fridge.


For a nut-free version, you can use raw unsalted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) or sunflower seeds. The taste will be slightly different, but it still works well if you can't have nuts.
