I have shared quite a few cashew cream recipes here, but this Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream is my absolute favorite. Smoky roasted red bell peppers and cashews make up the base of this sauce with red onion, garlic, and a touch of lemon juice.
There are so many great uses for it that I like to keep a batch in the fridge at all times. You can use it in place of salad dressing, as a dip, a tasty spread on sandwiches, crispy quinoa cakes, or tacos.
