  • 2 cloves garlic roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch kale any variety


  • Soak the cashews in water for 2 hours or overnight. Drain.
  • Wash the kale and prep by removing woody stems and chopping in bite-sized pieces or ribbons. If the leaves are really stiff, massage the leaves in a bowl until they become wilted.
