Good for:

Italian dishes


  • 75g / 1⁄2 cup cashew nuts or sunflower seeds
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast (I use Engevita yeast flakes)

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Place the cashew nuts or sunflower seeds into a high-speed blender and pulse a few times to break down.

Step 2

Add the other ingredients and blitz for a few seconds to combine. Don’t over- blend, as you want a little texture.

Step 3

Add more salt, garlic powder or nutritional yeast if you want a stronger flavour.

Step 4

Transfer to a glass jar. Keep in the fridge for up to one month.
