I didn't have cashews or macadamia nuts soaked, so I used {soaked} walnuts yesterday and it tasted just as good! I have also used cashews that were not soaked and it worked, but something about soaking the nuts helped with flavor and creaminess. It also helps our bodies to better digest the nuts when we soak them. If you would like a thicker dip consistency you can add a tablespoon of chia or ground flax seeds. Remember, the chia seed will absorb 9 times its weight in water and is a great thickening ingredient but not approved on Free-Diet phase 1.
