Nut butters are more popular than ever but they are also incredibly expensive. Which begs the question: have you tried making your own? A great way to venture into this tasty territory is by making cashew butter at home.
Cashews have a high fat content (the good kind of fat) which makes them easy to puree. However, the addition of a small amount of vegetable oil facilitates the grinding process so you end up with a smooth and creamy buttery spread with a natural hint of sweetness.
Making cashew butter is as easy as popping all of the ingredients into a food processor and blending until smooth. You may use cashews that are salted, roasted or raw - it's all up to your personal preferences.
Want to see how it all comes together? Check out this video featuring Shira Bocar from Everyday Food then proceed to slather toast, fruits and veggies with your homemade cashew butter. Yum!
