  • 1 ½ cups raw cashews, soaked in water 4-8 hours, rinsed, and drained
  • 3 vegetable bouillon cubes (or enough bouillon to make 3 cups of broth), crushed
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¾ cup water, divided
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 (10 ounce or 283 gram) package frozen spinach, thawed
  • ½ cup chopped scallions (about 3 scallions)
  • 1 (4 ounce or 113 gram) can water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
  1. Place the cashews into the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade. Add the bullion cubes, onion powder, garlic powder, and ¼ cup of water.

  2. Blend the mixture to a smooth paste, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  3. Add the remaining water and lemon juice. Blend everything again until smooth and creamy.

  4. Squeeze the spinach to remove as much excess water as possible, then add it to the food processor, along with the scallions and water chestnuts.

  5. Pulse the food processor until the ingredients are well-mixed, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  6. Taste-test the mixture and season it with salt and pepper to taste, if desired.

  7. Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and serve it with bread or veggies.
