Creamy Cashew Veggie Dip

—  found in  Food  —

If ever there was a recipe to help you eat more veggies, this is it!! Every time I make this dip for a party, Walker, Vienna and I end up eating a good chunk of it before it gets to the party. And if I can get Vienna to eat anything other than hummus then I feel like I’m winning — she LOVES this dip. 

This wonderful recipe is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and totally detox-friendly. In fact, it is a recipe from my new book Joyous Detox!

I created a video so you could see how easy it is to make. 

The addition of the lemon and apple cider vinegar gives it a tangy zippy zing that I love! It’s a dip you’ll want to make time and time again. 

The only thing you need to plan ahead is to soak the cashews. I recommend soaking for 2 to 4 hours. Or if you remember to put them in water before you got to bed then you can soak them overnight. 

Here’s the recipe!

I’m doing Whole 30 and can’t have honey or maple syrup. Is there a substitute you can think of that would be ok?? Medjool dates possibly??? 🤷🏼‍♀️ This sounds so good but don’t want to ruin it!!

My daughters and I LOVE this dip, only problem is it's a large quantity for the 3 of us to finish in a week. Do you think this would freeze well?

This recipe is a staple in our household. I generally skip the honey, add 2-3 tbsp of nutritional yeast, and switch up the herbs to keep it interesting (dill is fantastic in this recipe; it pairs really nicely with the tang from the apple cider vinegar). Everyone I've served this to has LOVED it. Thank you for creating and sharing this delicious recipe, Joy!
