Soak the nuts in water overnight or at least for couple of hours.
Drain and place it in a blender or NutriBullet. You won't reach that silky, creamy consistency in a food processor. It really has to be powerful.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the nuts and a cup of cold water, and blend. Don't worry if it seems a little too thin, it will thicken once you refrigerate it.
If you want cheesy flavour you can add teaspoon of nutritional yeast.
Depending on what you're using it for, you can add more lemon and zest, herbs, miso, soy sauce, spice.... anything, really.
200g of cashew nuts
water for soaking, twice the volume of nuts
salt, pepper to taste
juice of one lemon
1tsp Dijon mustard
