    • Hi, Kelli! I’m so happy you liked it. I used peeled light green zucchini, I guess if yours was dark green the color may be greener. Sometimes the cashews can be drier and doesn’t blend as well.You can try to add just a bit of water and blend it for longer.

  3. Made this the other day and could have eaten the whole thing in one sitting with a spoon! Sooooo good 🙂 Out of curiosity, how long does this last in the fridge and freezer? I want to use this for dipping veggies and what not like… every…. day…..

    • Hey there!
      You can substitute the cashew nuts with sunflower seeds or macadamia nuts. I guess the flavor will be slightly different but still delish. Btw cashews are not so high in oxalates themselves. Stay healthy!

    • Well, technically, some of the nutrients do leak into the water, however, I try to approach cooking with no-so-perfectionist way to make it practical for most people since steaming takes a bit more time. I think it’s most important to omit oils, refined carbs and animal products and eat whole plant foods.
      That said, I tried it with raw zucchini the other day and it was just as good!
      Also, I often keep the broth from the boiled veggies and I use it in my other dishes. It adds so much flavor and nothing goes to waste.
      Cheers!
