Jalapeño Cashew Sauce

One of my favorite dishes to have is a grain bowl. I love packing them with tons of vegetables, both roasted and raw. I will be sharing a grain bowl with you guys soon, but first I wanted to give you this sauce/dressing to make. I always top my bowls with some sort of dressing, usually a tahini based dressing and maybe some "cheese" sauce. This time, I thought I would try something a little bit different. There's still tahini in it, but that's not my main ingredient.

Let me know how you use this sauce, I love finding different ways to use recipes that I wouldn't normally think of. If you do make this, don't forget to use the hashtag, #LabbyRaEats so I can see any creations!


Jalapeño Cashew Sauce


  • 1/2 cup cashews, soaked

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

  • 1 jalapeño

  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbs water

  • 2 tbs tahini

  • garlic

  • sea salt


  1. Boil water and pour over cashews, let soak for 30 minutes (probably not necessary to soak but I just decided to soak mine to make it creamier).

  2. Once those are done soaking, drain, and pour into a blender. Then add the juice from half of a lemon, jalapeño without the seeds, water, and tahini. Blend on high until well combined. Add more water if you wan

  3. I would taste it now and then slowly add in the garlic and salt to taste. I did about 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1/2 tsp of sea salt.
