Spicy Cashew Dip

Do not miss making this raw vegan spicy cashew dip. It is absolutely incredible. This dip has a beautiful, rich, creamy texture that will fool even the most devout dairy devotee. I’ve served this cashew dip to hundreds of unsuspecting omnivores who’ve unknowingly scoffed it with delight.

This cashew dip is a staple in my house. I have literally made it hundreds or times, and it is always a huge hit. In fact, people beg for the recipe, and I promise, they will if you make it, too.

This is seriously one of the most incredible dips I’ve ever tasted, and it’s right up there with my top 5 of all time. It’s super easy, bursting with flavor, and incredibly versatile.

And, you can tweak the texture to your personal preference by adding more water. I like the dip rustic, but you might prefer it wetter and creamier.

However you make it, this dip is great with mild plain chips or crackers; mild veggie sticks such as cucumber, celery, and endive, and is phenomenal slathered on rice cakes, sandwiches, or wraps.

I’ll also make this dip to serve with my Indian buffet.

I got this cashew dip from Kurma Dasa.

About ten years ago, I took a series of Indian cooking classes with Kurma Dasa, and this spicy cashew dip is still my favorite recipe from his repertoire. And Kurma adapted this recipe from a Southern Indian chutney recipe in Yamuna’s Table.

So, this cashew dip is a recipe you keep passing on to people you love. So, I am now passing it onto you!

This cashew dip makes an amazing salad dressing!

Soak and drain your cashews, and throw then into your blender with the other ingredients, add another 1/4 to 1/2 cup of filtered water, and you have an incredible creamy salad dressing.

Don’t miss making this recipe. It’s seriously special.
