Tips ‘n’ Techniques

* Soy Creamer makes this extra special. 

** Canola oil add omega 3 and makes it extra rich and creamy, but adds A LOT of fat (not shown in nutritional info).  We like it just fine without oil, especially if we add 1 to 2 tsp Italian herbs.

*** We add these optional ingredients for variety once in a while.

**** Can use 1/2 sunflower seeds or almonds in place of 1/2 of the cashews for nutritional variety.  Cashews are very creamy and add the texture desired for this recipe.
