Mint Parsley Pesto (Vegan!)

Ingredients:
1. 1 cup raw cashews
2. 1 cup fresh mint
3. 1 cup fresh parsley
4. 1/2 cup nutritional yeast (this gives it cheesy flavor)
5. 1 garlic clove, diced
6. 1-2 tbsp olive oil
7. 1-2 tbsp water
8. 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
9. 1 tbsp bragg’s amino acid (or any soy sauce)

Directions:
1. Soak raw cashews in water until all are covered for 2-4 hours to soften.
2. Once cashews are done soaking, strain out the water and transfer cashews to blender or food processor
3. Add ingredients #2-9 to blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.

Serving ideas: We had this on  zucchini pasta (made w/ a spiralizer) and added some extra fresh mint and parsley on top.  We also tried it on crackers w/ some sliced heirloom tomatoes on top.  Great as a sauce, spread or thick dip!
