Cashew Almond Spread

This spread makes a great sandwich filling but my favorite way to enjoy it is stuffed into bell pepper halves or cucumber boats. You can serve it as a dip with your favorite veggies, too. Be careful not to use too much water when making the almond paste. You can always add a little more water afterwards, if the texture turns out too dry.


medium mixing bowl
chopping board or mini chopper
measuring cups and spoons


1 cup raw cashews, ground fine (I grind them in my blender.)
1 cup blanched almonds (I’ve also used unblanched almonds and it turns out fine.)
water, enough to make almond paste (see step #2)
1/2 cup celery, diced fine
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1 tsp Herbamare seasoning (Available at your local health food store.)
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
sea salt to taste


  1. Place ground cashews in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Place almonds in a blender with water JUST LEVEL with the almonds and blend into a paste. Combine the almond paste with the ground cashews until well blended.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
