Creamy, tangy, and just a bit spicy, this spreadable dip goes with just about everything. As part of our no-cook summer spread, this irresistible dip can be whipped up without ever having to turn on your oven.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ¼ cup white miso paste
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup kimchi (see note)
  • ¼ - ½ cup water, as needed for consistency
  • For garnish: sliced fresh green onions, chopped fresh cilantro, black sesame seeds, extra kimchi, and thinly sliced nori sheets.
  • For serving: sweet potato chips, raw veggies, or rice crackers.

Instructions

Soak the cashews in water for at least 2 hours until softened. Drain well.

Add all the ingredients except water to a food processor or blender and blend until completely smooth. Add pepper to taste. Thin with water if you desire a looser consistency.

Garnish and serve chilled or at room temperature. Store leftovers in a glass container.

Notes

Traditionally kimchi is made with fish sauce. To keep this recipe vegan be sure to find a kimchi made without it.
