  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked (3-4 hours)

  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 chipotle (Note: Start with 1/2 and work up to taste. If you are using a dry chipotle, soak for a few hours in warm water. It is helpful to make a slit in the pepper to decrease soaking time.)
