½ Red Onion, sliced

¼ cup Navitas Organics Cashew Nuts

½ tsp Garam Masala

1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

1 Tbsp Date Syrup (or preferred sweetener, optional)

DIRECTIONS

Heat a small sauce pot over medium heat with the Cacao Butter. 
Once hot, add in the onion and Cashews. Fry, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes, or until the onions and Cashews are golden and toasty. 
Pour everything into a blender, add in the seasonings, aminos, vinegar and sweetener, if using. Blend until smooth.
