Dairy-Free Avocado Crema

Dairy-Free Avocado Crema

1/2 cup raw cashews
3 cups water
1 small avocado
1 jalapeno, seeded for a mild flavor
1/8 cup lime juice
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

Soak the raw cashews in boiling water for 30 minutes, or room temperature water for 6 hours.

Drain the cashews, but reserve their soaking water. Blend the cashews with 1/4 cup of the water until you have a smooth and thick cream. Add a tablespoon more water at a time if it is too thick after blending.

Purée 1 small avocado with 1/4 cup of the cashew cream, jalapeno, lime juice, cayenne pepper, and salt. Makes about 1/2 cup.
