Lime & Dill Cultured Cashew Dip
June 14, 2016
This is such a versatile recipe to create, you can drizzle it over salads for a dressing, serve with veggie fritters, serve with veggie sticks or crackers or even on top of poached eggs. The benefit of this dip is that it's incredibly rich in probiotics.
1Add the cashews to a clean glass jar and cover them with the kefir. Close the lid and place the jar on a shelf in your pantry. Allow this to ferment for 12-24 hours. Note: If you don't have the Kultured Wellness Cultures, soak the cashews in warm water with 1-2 tsp of Changing Habits Probiotics for 24 hours to allow it to ferment.
2When they're ready, strain the liquid away from the fermented cashews (but don't throw it away, you will be using it in the recipe).
3Place the cashews, oil, salt, pepper, lime, garlic and 1/2 cup of the saved liquid ferment into a quality food processor or thermomix.
4Blitz until well combined, smoothy and super creamy, scrape down the sides and blend again for a couple minutes.
5Taste the mixture and adjust if needed.
6You can add more of the liquid ferment if you prefer a runnier dip, or leave it thicker for more of a 'cheese dip' texture.
7Pour into a glass jar (make sure to leave plenty of room at the top as it will continue to ferment and grow).
8Serve with homemade seedy crackers or veggie sticks.
