Dishing Up the Dirt

Sriracha Cashew Mayo

Up your sandwich game with this spicy “mayo.” I love how creamy cashews become when they’re blended until silky smooth. So whether you’re spreading this on a breakfast sandwich, turkey sandwich, burger or veggie burritos this spicy spread will take things up a few notches. It’s also wonderful mixed with egg yolks for a tasty deviled egg filling. The possibilities are endless….go wild!

  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked in warm water for 30 minutes
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha + more to taste for a spicer sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup water + more to thin as necessary


Drain the soaked cashews and place them in a high speed blender (like a Vitamix) along with the remainder of the ingredients. Blend on the highest setting until completely smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as necessary. Taste test and adjust seasonings as needed. If the mixture is too thick, add a touch more water to thin as necessary.
