A friend of mine emailed me this recipe to try because of my love of cilantro and cashews. It is without a doubt the first recipe I have seen that utilizes both. It is a mild Thai-style green curry sauce, mainly because only the oldest and I enjoy spicy hot foods. You can easily kick this one up a notch by using more ginger and adding a dose of cayenne powder or your favorite jolokia peppers. It goes great with shrimp, chicken tenders, or even chicken wings and comes together very simply.

- 1/3 cup organic plain yogurt
- 3/4 cup roasted unsalted Cashews
- 1/2 tsp of ginger powder or one 1/4" slice of fresh peeled ginger
- 1 tsp curry powder (I get mine custom blended locally)
- 1 tbsp organic honey
- 1/4 cup (packed) fresh organic cilantro
- A Cuizen*
*This is not a large volume recipe, so using your blender or food processor may be overkill. You will likely yield a cup of sauce.
Step 1: Blend Ginger and Cashews
Blend the ginger and cashews until smooth. We aren't looking for paste here, just a uniform and fine grind.
Step 2: ...and the Rest
Now add the yogurt, honey, curry, and cilantro and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
