About the Recipe
This sauce is a rich and luscious sauce that is great as a mayonnaise replacement, a veggie dip or a condiment for burgers. Oil and dairy are not missed in this recipe.
Coleslaw is a typical side served with Nigerian dishes. I replaced the mayonnaise-base sauce with this chili lime creme sauce and it was a game-changer.
1/2 cup cashews, soaked preferably
2 Tbs lime juice, fresh
apple cider vinegar
1 Tbs agave syrup
1/2 cup water
1 Tbs chili powder, ground
2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp salt
Soak cashews for 2-12 hours. (Recommended but not critical)
Rinse soaked cashews and add to a high-speed blender.
Add all remaining ingredients to the blender and blend until creamy and smooth. (Water can be added if it needs to be thinned)
Store in an airtight container and place in the fridge for 3-5 days.
