Nutritional yeast is a versatile seasoning that adds a burst of umami to anything from popcorn to oatmeal to this really delicious salad dressing.
- Put the cashews, nutritional yeast, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, garlic, and miso in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until the cashews are ground up and you have a uniform paste. With the motor running, add the olive oil in a thin, steady stream until the mixture is creamy. It will be fairly thick, so add water until the dressing has loosened up a bit.
