Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsalted roasted (or dry toasted) cashews
  • 3-4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (more to taste)
  • Directions

    In food processor, combine cashews, 3 tbsp vegetable oil, sugar and salt and blend until smooth. Add in some of the remaining oil if the mixture comes together into a ball instead of smoothing out into a paste. The whole process should take only a few minutes. Store in the refrigerator and bring up to room temperature for easy spreading. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
    Nut butters are one of those things that seem more difficult to make than they really are. All you need is nuts and a little bit of oil to help the nuts blend together smoothly in a food processor. Instead of using peanuts, opt for cashews, which have a richer and slightly sweeter taste. Add a fair amount of salt to give it a more savory taste that works great as a dip or spread on a sandwich. The effect is similar to peanut butter, but milder. If you want to make?chunky? nut butter, finely chop a handful of cashews beforehand, then stir them into the butter once it is blended.
