1 cup raw, soaked cashews

2 cups spinach, lightly packed

1/4 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves, coarsely chopped

1 large clove garlic, minced

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons water

1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 teaspoon cider vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Put the cashews in a food processor (or blender) and process until finely ground.
  2. Add the spinach, basil and garlic and pulse several times until the texture is uniform
  3. Add the oil, water, lemon juice and vinegar and salt, blend until well combined, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides with a spatula. Don’t over blend, the spread should retain some texture.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and it will keep for 5 days.
