  • 1 cup cashews soaking in 1 cup water for 30 minutes
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic granules
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 3 cups basil leaves, loosely packed
  • 2 cup parsley leaves, loosely packed


  1. Add cashews, soak water, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, garlic, and optional red pepper flakes to a blender. 
  2. Blend until smooth. The longer you blend the creamier it will be.
