Tips | Notes:

QUANTITY: To make a larger quantity, simply double or triple ingredient amounts and continue steps in recipe.

SOAKED CASHEWS: To best soak cashews, add 1 cup of cashews to a bowl or measuring cup and cover with cold water, sealing the top with plastic wrap and leaving it out (at room temp.) overnight. When ready to use, drain and rinse. For same day: Add cashews to a bowl or measuring cup and cover with boiling water, sealing the top and leaving it for 15-30 minutes. Drain, rinse, and continue recipe.
