Spreads and Dips! Theme: Cilantro

Cashew Spread

Made this in the Vitamix last week. It was very tasty. You can eat it 'straight' or spread it on a tortilla and bake it like a pizza. Sliced tomatoes on top would be good as well. Sorry I don't really measure stuff! It should be the consistency of a thick paste. For those that don't eat cheese, it makes a tasty alternative for pizza. It is not the is better.

  • Cashews
  • Cilantro
  • EVOO
  • lemon juice- fresh squeezed.
  • salt and pepper


Black Bean Dip

Today I made a bean spread. Cilantro is the theme. I made it too thin but it was still very tasty. You can use it as a dip, topping for nachos or whatever. I didn't have any canned or fresh tomatoes but I think it would have been a great soup heated to serve in the Vitamix with some corn mixed in at the end.

  • Canned (or pre cooked) black beans
  • Pitted Kalamata olives
  • Cilantro
  • Lemon juice- fresh squeezed.
  • Salt and Pepper
