Tips 'n' Techniques
* Soy Creamer makes
this extra special.
** Canola oil adds
omega 3 and makes it extra rich and creamy, but adds A LOT of fat
(not shown in nutritional info). We like it just fine without oil,
especially if we add 1 to 2 tsp Italian herbs.
*** We add these
optional ingredients for variety once in a while.
Can use 1/2
sunflower seeds or almonds in place of 1/2 of the cashews for
nutritional variety. Cashews are very creamy and add the texture
desired for this recipe.
