Cashew Cream
This is a great alternative to cream in a variety of recipes and soups.
2 cups whole raw cashews (not pieces, which are often dry), rinsed very well under cold water
Soak cashews in water overnight. Drain the cashews and rinse under cold water. Place them in a blender with enough fresh cold water to cover them by 1 inch. Blend on high for several minutes until very smooth.
