Servings: 8


  • 1 cup almonds
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon Bragg's liquid aminos


  • Add all ingredients to a high powered blender or food processor and process/blend until smooth.
  • Note that almonds are a hard nut so it takes a around 1-2 minutes of blending for the mixture to thin out and become the consistency of a dip/sauce.
  • For a thinner sauce, just add more water, 1 Tablespoon at a time until the consistency is how you like it.
