Recommended Equipment


  • 1/2 cup raw cashews (organic recommended)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (high quality sea salt or mineral salt recommended)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder


  • Add all ingredients to a food processor or high-speed blender.
  • Pulse/blend for a few seconds at a time until it reaches a uniform granular consistency (like in the photo).


DO NOT over-blend/over-process or you will get cashew butter! Also good, but not what we’re looking for here 😁
