By now we all know that I love eating healthy food that does not cost us too much time.  This five minute Cilantro Cashew Cream is the perfect dressing, sauce, cheese and spread! I added it to my udon noodles and tarts – but this is just a fraction of the ways you can use this simple and delicious recipe!

You could even use this as a dip for fresh cut veggies at your next party! The possibilities are truly endless and I highly suggest you give this healthy cashew cream a try!

You are going to love this Cashew Cream because it is:

  • flavourful
  • and versatile!

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

hello, I am a French blogger. I like your recipe very much though I do not know the Evoo product. Would it be possible to tell me exactly what it is? Thank you

Ive made this so many times now I thought I’d better leave a review – it’s amazing!!! Really, just as a dip with chips or on any Mexican meal. I’ve made a few different cilantro cashew sauces and this one is the best. The nutritional yeast pulls it all together. Thanks for sharing.
