Making cashew curry
- Add your lime juice, garlic, curry powder, coconut milk, pepper flakes, and some salt to the cashew butter in the NutraMilk.
- Add 1/2 cup of water and ¨Mix¨ until the mixture is very smooth and creamy. Keep adding water until you reach the consistency you want. Adjust seasoning if you need to.

Making curried cauliflower
