Servings: 6 -8 servings
Author: Thriving on Paleo


For the Cashew Spread:

  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked in water for at least 1 hour
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white cooking wine
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 handful fresh basil
  • sea salt to taste

For the Cherry Compote:


  • Add all of the cashew spread ingredients to a high speed blender or food processor and blend until creamy. Store in the fridge until ready to serve (it will thicken up a bit in the fridge).
  • Add the cherry compote ingredients to a small sauce pan and bring to medium heat.
  • Once it starts bubbling, reduce the heat to medium-low and use the back of a fork to mash the fruit.
  • Continue cooking for 15 more minutes, occasionally mashing further as you stir.
  • Remove from heat and store in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
