Cashew Sour Cream is Just a Dollop Away

Cashews are no longer just a snack for popping, but wonderful little treats packed with tons of nutrition. It is safe to say that cashews are quickly becoming another ingredient for Forrest Gump and Bubba to recite. With 5 grams of protein per ounce, and high levels of essential minerals like iron, and magnesium, which are paramount in keeping with a healthy diet, you can take two and call me in the morning.

Like many things, you should enjoy cashews in moderation. They are relatively high in fat, 12 grams per ounce, but even with the high fat content, they are considered to be “low-fat” because they contain less fat per serving than almonds, walnuts, peanuts and pecans. They also have a large amount of dietary fiber, which can help with weight management.

I am trying to avoid sounding like a cashew angler but I just can't help it. The best way to showcase the versatility of cashews, and to further convince you that they should play a pivotal role in your diet, is to give you a recipe too enjoy.

I have created many main dishes but this one is the icing on the cake, so to speak.

Sour cream is the perfect addition to hundreds of recipe, and just the right topping to some.

Cashew Sour Cream

1 1/2 cups raw cashews

1/4 TBS lemon oil

1/2 to 3/4 cup water

Salt to taste


Using a blender or food processor, blend the cashews, lemon oil, water ,and a little salt until the consistency is much like whipped cream.

You may add a little water as you go, until you reach the desired consistency.

Store in an airtight container for 4 days.
