This Spicy Cashew Butter recipe is perfect for when you want something healthy and tasty but you’re too tired or busy to spend a lot of time cooking. A mix of cumin, coriander, ginger, garlic, hot chili powder, and sea salt it’s sure to be a palate-pleaser!  Great smeared on toast or thin it out a bit with water and use it as a sauce over some stir-fried or roasted veggies. Or add to tomato-based soups to give a nice depth of flavour!

Vegan and gluten-free, this takes very little prep, just 5 minutes to cook the spice mix and then as much time as it needs in the blender to get to your desired level of crunchiness or creaminess!

Delicious on toast, a bagel, by the spoonful!

Or get faux fancy and make a side of toast points!
