This vegetarian option is super easy and will enhance any soup. Just be sure to buy raw cashews. 

Cashew Cream
Yields 3
A much healthier option then cream. I think you will love this.

  1. raw cashews
  2. water
  1. Put 2 cups whole, raw cashews (not pieces which are often dry) and rinse very well under cold water. Put in a bowl and add cold water to cover them. Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Drain the cashews and rinse under cold water.
  3. Place the cashews in a blender with enough fresh cold water to cover them by 1 inch. Blend on high for several minutes until very smooth. (If youโ€™re not using a professional high-speed blender such as a Vita-Mix, which creates an ultra-smooth cream, strain the cashew cream through a fine-mesh sieve.)
  4. Makes about 3 1/2 cups regular cashew cream.
