1 c. raw cashews, soaked completely in water for at least 1 hour and then drained
1/2 c. water
1/4 c. fresh parsley
2 Tbsp. minced onion
1 large garlic clove
For the "Cool Ranch" seasoning (Blend everything together)
1/4 c. nutritional yeast
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried parsley
1 tsp. dried chives
1/2 - 1 tsp. salt (depending on your salty tooth)
In a high-speed blender, mix together the cashews and water until smooth. You want it to be a bit thick as a dip would be. If you need to add more water, add 1 tablespoon at a time.
Add the garlic clove and 1 Tbsp. of the cool ranch seasoning and blend again until smooth. Taste first to see if you want more seasoning.
Pulse in the fresh parsley and minced onion. You want it still chunky so don't blend it too much.
Chill in the fridge in an airtight container. The cooler it becomes, the tastier it gets.
You will have "Cool Ranch" seasoning leftovers--Hooray! Save in a plastic baggie or glass jar and keep as an all-purpose seasoning.
