Recipe Difficulty: Easy
Making your own vegan cream to use in cooking is incredibly simple! You only need two ingredients. Raw Cashews & Water. The raw cashews are first soaked, and then blended together with the water until smooth and creamy. Soaking the cashews first allows them to become soft enough that when you blend them with water the mixture becomes smooth and creamy without any detectable cashew bits. The result is an incredibly rich and versatile vegan cream which can be used for a variety of cooking projects. it's a great dairy-free alternative, and you might be surprised how delicious it is in various recipes.
How to use Vegan Cream
Basically, use it anywhere you would use regular cream to cook with.
How to Store Vegan Cream
I store my vegan cream in a glass mason jar in the fridge. Generally I don't like to keep it past 5 days, but up to 7 days is possible. You can halve the recipe if you don't think you will use a lot.
Where Do You Get Raw Cashews?
Raw cashews are cashews that have not been roasted or otherwise processed. They are typically off-white in color and have a slightly softer texture than roasted cashews. They are often used in cooking and can be found in many health food & bulk stores and supermarkets. They can also be purchased online.
