Notes

WHY SOAK NUTS OVERNIGHT OR BOIL THEM BEFORE USING FOR DRESSINGS?

Not only does soaking raw cashews soften them to make them easier to blend, but it also releases enzymes to make the cashews easier to digest. Although this practice is not necessary for roasting, it does give you a reason for meal prepping ahead. If you don't have digestion issues, and you have a high-speed blender, most dressing or dips do not require soaking.
