Please note, for this recipe you will need a good food processor. I have a Ninja but there are many good machines out there. You could even use a good liquidizer.
You will also need to prepare a container or bowl. You do this by greasing it and then sprinkling chilli flakes inside to coat the interior.
In your processor:
1 cup of raw cashew nuts that have been soaked in boiling water and left there for a couple of hours to soften.
1/3 cup water
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons of a vegan butter or coconut oil
1/4 cup of sesame oil
A small carrot
2 teaspoons of salt
1/4 teaspoon each of paprika, cayenne pepper and French mustard
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 vegetable stock cube
Process until very smooth.
Meanwhile in a saucepan bring 1 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of Agar Agar powder to the boil and boil for 1 minute only.
Add the Agar mix to your processor and process quickly as the Agar will start setting.
Add the mix to your prepared bowl and store in the refrigerator.
Enjoy with crudites or even better on some lovely crusty bread.
