½ cup (125 mL) cashews

1 cup (250 mL) chlorine-free water
½ cup (125 mL) vegetable oil
2 Tbsp live miso paste
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp tomato paste
2 green onions, finely diced
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper


  1. Soak the cashews in the water for 1–2 hours. (They soften really quickly.) Drain the cashews then place them in a blender or food processor with the oil and miso. Pulse until you have a smooth purée.
  2. Pour the mixture into a 3-cup (750 mL) glass container or jar for fermenting. Put a lid on the container and stash it in a cupboard to ferment for 24 hours.
  3. The next day, mix in the vinegar, tomato paste, green onions, and garlic powder. Season with the salt and pepper. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed. The exact amount of salt required will depend on the saltiness of the miso.
  4. Store the dip in the fridge and use within 2 weeks.
