Quick & Easy Basil Cashew Cream Toasts Print 2 LikeDislike By Kate Van Horn Don’t you just love a speedy recipe? I’m here with a quick, five minute recipe that will impress anyone. Lately I’ve been really into making my food feel fancy. Even my snacks I want to feel kind of – special. I found that taking that extra minute to garnish a dish, add some lemon zest, or a drizzle of olive oil just takes it up a notch and makes the experience more enjoyable. But how do you accomplish this in your home kitchen? Easy! use quality ingredients and fresh herbs. These are two of my favorite ways to jazz up a “ordinary” meal. Keep fresh herbs on your counter and invest in quality olive oils. Keep balsamic reduction around, always have Himalayan sea salt and ripe lemons, and you’re golden. I’ve been motivated to stop using all soy based vegan substitutes in my cooking, and focus on whole food. cashews has been great for adding creaminess to a dish.I chose to top these toasts with cherry tomato, capers (so good!), watercress which is my new favorite green, and more fresh basil. It would be delicious with cucumber or red onion as well!
