Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 red bell peppers (or 1 jar of roasted red bell peppers, drained)
  • 1 cup raw cashews (soak for at least 1 hour in water, then drain liquid)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • If you are roasting your own bell peppers, preheat oven to 400℉.  Prepare the peppers by cutting them in half, removing the stems, seeds and membranes.
  • Lay the peppers on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, cut side facing down.  You could also place the peppers directly on a baking sheet.
  • Roast for 18-23 minutes, until the skins are blackened and the peppers are sunk and have lost their shape.  Remove from the oven, place the peppers in a bowl, and cover with a plate to steam.
  • Once cooled enough to the touch, peel the skins off of the peppers.  Now you have roasted red bell peppers!
  • Once you have roasted bell peppers, combine all the remaining ingredients in a food processor (or high speed blender) and blend until smooth.
