Crowd-Pleasing Vegan Cashew & Pepper Dip

This is one my most requested recipes when I entertain. I like to serve it with whole grain crackers, celery sticks, and baby carrots. You can roast the red pepper yourself, or you can buy them in a jar from your local deli.

What You Need:

 

  • 2 cups cashew pieces
  • 1 roasted red pepper (or three large pieces from a jar)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

 

What You Do:

  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl frequently. 
  2. Process for 3 minutes to make the dip completely smooth.
