1 C of raw cashews, soaked overnight1 1/2 tsp of salt (or more to taste)1/2 tsp of garlic powder1/3 C of water1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar (or white vinegar)1 1/2 C of yellow onion, finely chopped1 tsp of oil, medium-high heat
Place raw cashews in a bowl and cover with water by about 2-3 inches. Place in refrigerator and let soak overnight. If short on time, simply cover cashews with boiling water and let soak as long as possible. Ideal soak time is 8 hours, minimum is 2 hours.
Drain cashews and rinse in a colander. Set aside.In a skillet, saute finely chopped onion in 1 tsp of medium heat oil. Cook on low heat, covered for 15 minutes, then remove cover and cook an additional 5 minutes until golden brown.
In a food processor, combine all ingredients and process for 3-4 minutes on high until rich and creamy. Adding more water and scraping down the sides as needed. Ideally, chill for 1-2 hours before serving (but you can eat it immediately as well) Enjoy!
