Cashew Aioli

Cashew Aioli

It’s that time of the year when we are just starting to get some more exciting fresh produce again in my region. (Just beginning, though.) Artichokes have been catching my eye lately so I thought it was a great opportunity to pair some lovely edible thistles with an equally lovely cashew aioli. Soy- and oil-free, this aioli gets its signature creamy texture from cashews (seriously, what did we ever do before the humble cashew???) and the egginess of traditional aioli is brought by the nutritional yeast – which can be cheesy as well as eggy – and a dash of kala namak, a.k.a. black salt. Kala namak is a staple of the Indian spice pantry and lends an odd, uncanny sulfurous flavor that is reminiscent of eggs. You can find this at Indian markets and I highly recommend adding it to your vegan scrambles and omelets to bring it up a notch. A quick word of warning: use a very light hand with the stuff as it is quite pungent. Truly, only a dash is necessary. You can always add more after tasting if it’s not detectable enough.

Speaking of great food, check out our new e-book, Fun, Festive and Fabulous Vegan Holidays for Everyone: Recipes, Puns, Historic Lore, Tips and More to Help You Celebrate Without Compromise, and I think you will LOVE it.
