This spread, featured at the bottom of this photo, was by far the hit of the Lifehouse Community Celebration. Here's a great way to eat healthy at parties and potlucks. I also like to use it as a spread on rainforest or light rye crackers as a snack. Cashews contain protein and healthy fats.
(Use organic ingredients where possible)
· 2 cups whole raw cashews
· 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
· ½ cup chopped celery
· ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
· 2 cloves of garlic
· 1 tsp sea salt
1. In a food processor, add all ingredients and processor until smooth.
2. Stop the processor periodically to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
3. Serve immediately or store in a covered glass container in the refrigerator. This keeps up to four days in the fridge.
