Creamy Basil Dip
This creamy Basil Dip is totally versatile. You can serve it as a dip with potato wedges, tortilla chips, raw veggies; drizzle it over buddha/bliss bowls, or use it as a salad dressing.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 2 people
- 3/4 cup cashews (soaked in water overnight; rinsed and drained)
- 3 teaspoons lemon juice
- 3/4 teaspoon maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (tightly packed) basil
- 1/3 cup water
Add all the ingredients in your blender*.
Blend until completely smooth. You might have to scrape down the sides a bit.
Recommendation: Let the dip chill in the fridge for an hour before serving.
*I'm using a blender with a small container (16 oz = 500ml), that I bought especially for making sauces. If you're using a large blender (like Vitamix, Blendtec, etc.) you might have to double the recipe.
Storage: Keep the sauce in the fridge for up to 2 days.
