Cashew Sour Cream

  • ½ cup cashews, raw
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • ½ teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • dash sea salt

Potato Mix

  • 1 cup onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or chopped fine
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 pound red potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • ½ cup green beans, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste


Cashew Sour Cream:

  • If you have a powerful mixer you don't need to pre-soak the cashews.  Otherwise soak cashews in water from one hour to overnight.  You can also cover them with water in a saucepan, bring to a boil and simmer 30 minutes.

Drain cashews and place in blender.

    Add the remaining ingredients.

    • Blend until smooth.  Use a spatula to scrap down the sides and if it seems too dry add water a teaspoon at a time.
    • Put in the refrigerator until you are ready to add to the potatoes at the end of cooking in the crock pot.

    Preparing the Potatoes and Slow Cooker Instructions:

    • Heat 1 tablespoon water in a skillet.  Add the onion immediately and start sautéing.  Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes and add garlic, cayenne pepper, paprika and salt.  Heat through for a minute.
    • Add the skillet mixture to the slow cooker.  Add the potatoes, green beans, broth, and tomato paste.  Stir well.
    • Cook on low for 5 hours or on high for 2 ½ hours or until the potatoes are tender.
    • Add the sour cream and stir carefully as to keep the potatoes in chunks.  Let heat through for about 15 minutes.
