Makes around 6-8 Servings
 
What you'll need
  • 1 bag Münki Jamaican Jerk Cashews, 3/4 for sauce & 1/4 to sprinkle on top
  • 2 cups potatoes (approx 8 small potatoes), peeled and diced
  • 1 cup carrots (2-3 carrots), peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp liquid aminos or tamari

 

Instructions
  • Boil or steam the potatoes and carrots for about 10 minutes or until just tender (try not to over cook). Drain them and add them to a high-powered blender. 
  • Add all the remaining ingredients and blitz until smooth. Depending on your blender this could be 1-5 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with tortilla chips & sliced up veggies (or for you fancy folks... crudités) 
 
PRO TIP: Keep leftover sauce in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week or freeze it (it freezes well)! To defrost, ransfer the frozen container to the fridge the night before & heat it in a saucepan over a low flame just before you serve it up. You can always add a splash of water or plant-milk to the saucepan to make it creamy, easy to stir and stop it from burning. 
 
This sauce is addictive. Don't say we didn't warn you!
