Last night I was craving nachos. I got the idea in my head to make some sort of avocado topping for the nachos. And I had the idea to blend some avocados with cashews…because cashews seem to make most things better. I did some research and found a few recipes similar to the idea I had in my head. And I came up with my own avocado-cashew cream topping!
- One avocado
- 1/2 raw cashews soaked for a few hours
- 1/4 cup water
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder (if you don’t like spicy things, just leave this out)
- 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
Blend the soaked cashews with the water until super smooth! Transfers to a food processor. My blender didn’t want to blend the avocados. If yours does…then no need to transfer. Add the avocado and spices. Blend and then serve! I left mine chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes, but it’s ok to use it right away!
Usually we top our nachos with tvp, refried beans and some melty gooey vegan cheese. I felt like being a little healthier so I chopped up some raw veggies. I also had some corn and pinto beans to add to the fun!
