  1. Add the cashews and water to a glass dish or container with a lid. Cover and soak for 3-4 hours or overnight.
  2. Once soaked, drain most of the water, reserving 1/2 cup.
  3. In a food processor, add the cashews, reserved water, lemon juice, onion, garlic powder and salt, and blend on high until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add in the oregano, basil and chives and pulse a few times until mixed through but not blended in.
  5. Refrigerate for a few hours. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and some veggies, crackers and pretzels.
  6. Store any leftovers in the fridge and use within 5-7 days.
