  1. Boil enough water to cover cashews and soak cashews for 30 minutes or soak overnight in the the fridge
  2. Drain (saving the liquid) and add cashews, ¾ cup of the reserved liquid or fresh water, soy sauce, raw sesame seeds, maple syrup (optional) and chopped or grated ginger to high speed blender*

* If you have a large high speed blender such as a vitamix, you may need to make a larger batch in order for there to be enough substance to blend properly.
