You can cook whole dried beans to save money for this as well. I soak them overnight and then cook in the slow cooker. They are delicious when prepared this way.

Legumes and Nuts are Nutrient Dense Foods that Can Be a Powerful Foundation in a Plant-Based Diet.

The food we eat has a major impact on our health, but the way we prepare it can also have an effect. Eating a diet high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can lead to many health problems, such as obesity and heart disease. But what if I told you that changing these factors could make all the difference? Just by cooking your meals with whole food, and plant-based ingredients, you can improve your health.

  • Author: Siri Chand Khalsa
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp corriander seed

  • 1/8 tsp smoked paprika (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 cup yellow or orange bell pepper ((can substitute cooked squash or carrots) )
  • 1 jalapeno (if desired )


  1. Presoak cashews 4-8 hours.
  2. Combine all ingredients into a high-speed blender and puree for 1-2 minutes to give a smooth consistency. If you don’t have time to soak the cashews, you can cook them on a stove top for 3-5 min in boiling water and let soak for 10-15 minutes. Be sure to blend for long enough that it has a smooth consistency. Can add additional spices for your own flavor.
  3. Take this mixture and cook over medium high heat until low boil and whisk to maintain even consistency. You can also use a slo cooker but it is good idea to stir from time to time. It will keep 2-3 days after this in the fridge.
