Cashew Cream Recipe (Easy Vegan Recipe)

by Freya
Delicious vegan cashew cream in a bowl

This cashew cream is one of our most used recipes of all time

We cook it up multiple times a week, as it goes with so many different dishes and cuisines. You can have cashew cream on tacos or salads, on a baked sweet potato, with crudites or spread on toast. You can also make it into a deliciously creamy cheese sauce mixed with pasta or drizzled over some nachos. The possibilities are endless! Sometimes I honestly just spoon it in straight from the blender. I really could eat tubs of it. It’s so addictive! It’s amazing what a few little cashews can turn into. Something magical happens when they’re softened and blended up with a little bit of salt. Cashews are the perfect nut for that creamy dairy-free replacement.

Why not enjoy this cashew cream with our Vegan Shakshuka or these Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges?

An easy 5 ingredient vegan recipe 

This recipe only has 5 ingredients and is ready to eat in 20 minutes. The most important part of this recipe is the soaking of the cashews. You mustn’t skip this step. Otherwise, the cashews won’t blend well, and you won’t get a lovely smooth, creamy sauce. We recommend heating some water in a saucepan and soaking the cashews for 20 minutes in the pan with the heat on low. You could also soak them in water in a bowl and leave them overnight.

This cashew cream recipe is:

  • Super smooth and creamy
  • Vegan and dairy-free
  • Only 5 ingredients
  • Completely addictive
