Tips & Tricks For the Creamiest Vegan Dips

  • It is SO essential to soak your cashews until they’re nice and soft! But.. I get it. Sometimes you just don’t have 4-8 hours to soak the cashews. You can speed up the process by submerging the cashews in hot water for 5-10 minutes!
  • Feel free to adjust the seasoning to your preference! For example, if you like your dips a more garlicky, you can add more garlic powder, or better yet, a clove of roasted garlic!
  • Not a dip person? You can ABSOLUTELY use this same recipe as a spread for sandwiches, flatbreads, and more!
