Alkaline Recipe #169: Creamy Vegan Cashew Dressing (Caesar Alternative)

Article by ross

This is one of my new favourites!

It’s a 3-ingredient, 5-minute dressing that can be used on practically anything

It’s a bit like a Caesar Dressing, but dairy-free, gluten-free, acid-free, sugar-free and really rather alkaline!

Ross’ 3-Ingredient Alkaline Cesar Dressing

Serves 4


1/2 cup raw (organic) cashews
1 cup yeast-free vegetable stock
2 cloves garlic


(If you don’t have a high speed blender (Vitamix, Blendtec etc) the cashews need to be soaked in warm water for at least 30 minutes prior to making, otherwise it might not blend too smooth…!)

1. Drain the cashews (if soaked)
2. Add to a blender with the garlic and stock
3. Blend until smooth!

……et voila!

That’s it, it’s that simple and it is awesome.

You can serve over veggies, on salads or any other dish.

It could be your backup, simple, easy way to get a big hit of greens: just wilt some spinach or kale and serve with this dressing – delicious!

Just like this:

kale and cashew dressing

Plus, fresh from the blender, unless you’ve cooled your stock the dressing is warm like a sauce and is so darn delicious!

Enjoy 🙂

    Kate I had same problem so was advised by lady in health food shop to just boil up a carrot n celery and make my own stock 🙂

    I made the garlic, cashew dressing to day but have found it very runny using a cup of vegetable stock……have had it before in vegan restaurant and it was quite thick!
    How can I make a thicker sauce?
    Thank you Lyn

    Hi from France, Ross!
    Where can one buy yeast-free vegetable bouillon? Or do I have to make it myself?
    It’s organic but not yeast-free : (
    I’m going to try this recipe anyway, yeast and all.
    Merci beaucoup for everything!

    Hi Ross,

    Please help to clear up my thinking. I have always been under the impression that cashews are acidic, so I have avoided using them. Please explain why this dressing is alkaline. Thank you so much!

    Hi Ross
    The dressing sounds delicious.
    I’m a bit confused. In your alkaline-acid food charts, you list cashews as acid. I can’t work out how the dressing can be alkaline if cashews are acid. Am I missing something?
