Make this creamy cashew sauce, then serve with pumpkin falafel, wholemeal pitta pockets and red cabbage and orange salad. Also check out more of our Middle Eastern meze recipes.

Ingredients

  • 170g 100% smooth cashew nut butter
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 large lemon, juiced

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip all the ingredients, plus ¾ tsp of salt, into a food processor with 100-200ml of water, depending on the thickness of the cashew butter and how thin you like your sauce, and blitz until smooth.

  • STEP 2

    Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. It will keep for a day in the fridge but will thicken as it chills, so you may need to add a little water to loosen – it should be a thick, pouring consistency.
