CREAMY NUTNAISE
Creamy Nutnaise is a low-fat, creamy spread - much better than mayonnaise!

¾ C. water
¾ C. raw cashews
6 oz. tofu, or ½ C. blanched almonds or pine nuts
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. brewers yeast flakes (opt.)
2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
¼ C. cold pressed oil (olive or safflower)

* Combine all ingredients except oil in blender bowl.
* Blend on high for 1-2 minutes, or until smooth and creamy.
* Slowly add oil while blending; chill. (This will thicken once chilled)
* Makes approx. 2 cups and will keep refrigerated for approximately 2 weeks.
