  • 1/2 c. hot water
  • 1/2 c. almond butter (original recipe was for peanut butter
    - I use almond cause I'm allergic to peanut)
  • 1/4 c. cider vinegar
  • 2 T. tamari sauce
  • 2 T. blackstrap molasses
  • 1/4 c. cayenne (this is a HUGE amount - I use 1-2 tsp.)

  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 lb. tofu, cubed
  • 2 c. onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 c. chopped cashews

In small saucepan, whisk together almond butter and hot water until you have a uniform mixture.
Whisk in remaining sauce ingredients and set aside.
