Creamy Garlic Dill Sauce (raw, GF, vegan)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

This dill sauce is wonderful.  The garlic is rather strong so when you make your sauce add one clove at a time and taste test as you go.  Personally, I love garlic.  Also, you can thin this sauce to whatever you desire as well.  When I first made this recipe I did a single batch, my husband and I ate all of it and then made more.

Creamy Garlic Dill Sauce
(Allisa Cohen, tweaked by Amie Sue)
Serves 1


  • ½ cup raw cashews, soaked for approximately 2 hours
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp cold pressed olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 tsp dill
  • ½ tsp salt, plus extra for pasta


  1. Place all remaining ingredients in blender and blend until a creamy sauce is created.
  2. Taste to see if more salt is needed.
  3. Sauce can be warmed in dehydrator if wished.
  4. This sauce is great served on top zucchini pasta or as a veggie dip.

    One of my faves… not only with Zucchini Pasta, Sliced Tomatoe, Fresh Cilantro, Avocado on top… but also just made a twist on a simple quasi Indian Salad…. Cucumber, Zebra Tomatoe, fresh Lime & pepper… with the creamy garlic dill sauce on top. (picture can be found on my website FB link attached to my name)

    I usually just make the sauce & only use a heaping spoon per serving & fridge the rest for a few other dips or sauce servings in the week.

    And, I only use One large clove of garlic… teehee.

    I am diabetic and got a book on going raw, but in this book it says to NOT use cashews… what can I use in place of cashews in these recipes? I think it is only until I get my numbers down to normal… will see… but want to do mostly raw afterwards as well….
    Thanks, love your site,

    This is absolute the best sauce ! I can’t eat enough of this. I even made a cucumber, beet, with hemp seed and mixed it up with sauce. Fantastic !

    Thank you

    Dinner is looking (and tasting),…. Yummy!!!!! Good thing I made 6 batches of it for our crew. Yes , I made sure to taste test each batch (to make sure it measured up to the last batch…:] I’m feeling kinda full …LOL !!! It’s great even made with sunflower seeds (have to make it this way due to Gene’s allergies),rather then cashews. It’s perfect!!!! Thanks Amie Sue…. :] Lyn

      Hope that helps Carol on post above, most all of the recipes I have tried so far of Amie Sue’s that call for cashews , I am able to switch out with sunflower seeds (soaked of course). :] Lyn
