This Spicy Orange Cashew Dip is a perfect snack — full of flavour and you can make it in mere minutes. It’s essentially my Spicy Cashew Butter with the addition of fresh squeezed orange juice and hot chili powder.

Spicy Orange Cashew Dressing/Dip with Rainbow Carrots

Eating Together Made Easy

This recipe is 100% plant-based. Pair it with crunchy veggies like these rainbow carrots. Broccoli would work too or parsnips! Yes, you can eat them raw!

Or, thin out the dip with a little extra orange juice to make a dressing, and toss with grated carrots and cabbage to make a zesty slaw. Optionally, add in some crushed cashews and fresh cilantro.

This Spicy Orange Cashew Dip would also make a great sauce drizzled over a Buddha Bowl with toasted quinoa and roasted root vegetables. Add some roasted chicken for the omnivores in the crowd.

An Impromptu Guest Stylist

The photos are fun, don’t you think?

I had an impromptu guest stylist this post.

My sweetie Mikael conjured up this arrangement while I had my back turned. I loved it and, barring a tiny nudge to an orange segment, left it exactly as he designed it.
