adapted from a vegweb recipe
I created this based on Kandaces Zucchini Hummus for a customer that didn’t like too much zucchini and wanted a different hummus taste. It turned out really rich so I thought I would post it.
This can be used as a mayonnaise, a base for desserts, a dressing for salads or cream dip for veggie sticks or for strawberries or other fruit..whatever you desire. It’s so versatile and you can doctor it up however you like. I made this little concoction because I wanted to use up the rest of my fresh basil. It’s quick and easy and the combination of sweet and salty along with its creaminess is really nice. Raw cashews are naturally sweet and so is fresh basil, but I think that soaking the cashews might bring out their sweetness even further. I didn’t soak them this time and they were still sweet and blended very easily to a very creamy consistency.
This dish actually happened by accident. I was making some stuffed tomatoes, so I decided to blend the insides of the tomatoes with some raisins and garlic… and Voila! It tasted like a thick version of that orange duck sauce you get with take out. This is just too easy!
Fast. Easy. No Questions Asked.
All you do is cut the catcus and mix the guacamole together.
This is a SIMPLE guacamole recipe. I really enjoy the fresh fiesta taste of avocado, heirloom tomato and cilantro! There are so many things you can add to liven it up: Fresh pressed garlic, chopped: onions, tropical fruits, stone fruits, bell pepper, cactus, sprouts, sunflower or hemp seeds, sprouted lentils, etc.
- chili powder, cayenne, thai spices, dulse, raw honey or agave nectar… you get the idea!
