Cilantro-Lime Crema (Vegan, Paleo, Dairy Free)


Dip. Salad dressing. Taco topping (or just about any Mexican food, for that matter). This stuff is the bomb and is sooo versatile! It was amazing dip for plantain chips (as shown in the picture). I've tried to perfect this recipe for a while -- first I tried using soaked cashews for the "creaminess" that a lot of other recipes use for cream substitutions, but I hated the texture. It was too grainy, and I needed this to be smooth smooth smooth. As of yesterday, I finally got it down! One ingredient that might surprise you is the 1/2 raw onion -- trust me on this. It will give the crema a certain bite that it needs! Just throw the ingredients in a blender and pour over all. the. things.
