Versatile dairy-free cooking with a single ingredient.
Recipe type: non-dairy, creamer
Cuisine: gluten-free, vegan
Serves: 1 cup
  • 100g or ½ + ¼ cup of cashews
  • approx. 150 ml or over ½ cup of water
  • pinch of salt
  1. Soak cashews overnight in filtered water, or -in case you forgot- soak them in hot water for an hour.
  2. Drain and rinse them, then put into a tall measuring cup. Pour over enough water to cover them (in my case this was 150 ml).
  3. Blend with an immersion mixer until very smooth. Consistency depends on how much water you use: for a thicker cream, try with less water and see how you like it, for a thinner one just add some more water. Salt to taste, and you're done!
