If you have a food processor, then you have the upper hand for this recipe. A blender will do the job, but only if it is a high-speed blender like a Vitamix. Should you decide to use a blender, it’s beneficial to soak the cashews for a couple hours. If you use a food processor, a 15-30-minute soak will be sufficient. Soaking in water helps to soften the cashews, which makes for a creamier spread that goes inside the mini sweet peppers.

When it comes to stuffing the peppers, you have two options. You can remove the tops, hollow out the peppers, and fill them that way (pictured). The other option is to cut them in half lengthwise, remove the seeds, and fill each half with the spread. However you decide to fill the peppers is completely fine. Your preference is what matters! Lastly, if you feel like adding some extra herbs to the spread, please feel free to do so. Dried parsley, oregano, and lemon zest are all tasty additions that enhance the flavor of the spread. If you make this recipe, we’d love to hear how it turned out for you.
