Cashew Butter and Banana Sandwiches
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A perfect appetizer finger food. It pairs nicely with a bubbly wine, as well as a crispy Sav blanc, etc....
2 cups cashews
If cashews are raw, add a little butter or oil and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir. Microwave another 1-2 minutes until they are just beginning to toast but not to burn. Allow to cool. If using salted roasted cashews, it is not necessary to toast them. In processor with steel chopping blade in place, whirl the cashews to make a butter like consistency. Add just enough of the preferred milk to make a spreadable mixture. Whirl in salt and red pepper. Spread mixture on two slices of bread, slice bananas over the cashew butter and top with a lettuce leaf. Cut into half diagonally to make finger food size bites.
