1 1/2cupsSavory Cashew Cream * (see notes for substitution options)
2Tablespoons. chipotle puree (or 2 chipotles in adobo (finely chopped))
2Tablespoons. lime juice (1 or 2 limes (depending on how juicy they are))
1/4cupchopped cilantro (coriander)
1medium red onion (diced)
3scallions/green onions (sliced (save the roots to grow more!)**)
3clovesof garlic (minced or grated with a microplane (or sub 1 t. garlic powder or granulated garlic))
3poundsof baby potatoes (cooked until fork-tender, then sliced into 1/2 inch pieces (see notes for pressure cooker suggestion)***)
1red bell pepper (diced)
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook potatoes until fork tender, by either steaming, boiling, or pressure cooking (see note for pressure cooking instructions). Let rest until cool enough to slice into 1/2-inch pieces.
Mix Savory Cashew Cream, chipotle puree, lime juice, garlic, and mustard and stir until combined.
Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 5 days (it won't last that long). Garnish with additional chopped cilantro when serving, if desired.
*Sub vegan mayo for the Savory Cashew Cream, if desired (nutrition facts will change of course). If you don't want to have the savory cashew cream left over (are you all right?), you can make just enough for this recipe by blending together 1 cup of raw cashews, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 T. apple cider vinegar, 1/2 t. salt, and 1/2 T. nutritional yeast along with the chipotle puree, mustard, lime juice, and garlic before proceeding with the recipe.**Save the root ends of the green onions and submerge in a small container of water in a windowsill. They will regrow so you can use them again! Or plunk them in a small pot with a bit of soil and they'll grow that way also.***Steamed potatoes are easy in a pressure cooker - I love my Instant Pot! For baby potatoes, place a steamer rack into the bottom of the IP insert, add 1 1/2 cups of water, and cook for 5 minutes on the Steam function. Use the quick release when the cooking time is up. For full size potatoes, cook for 13 minutes.
