Soak the cashews in water for at least 2 hours, ideally overnight (or if you’re in a rush, you can boil for 10 minutes). Preheat the ½ teaspoon of olive oil a small nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Sauté the diced bell pepper until softened and browning in spots, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer to a high-speed blender or food processor. Add the rest of the spread ingredients and process until smooth, adding water as needed, 1 tablespoon at a time, to help it blend. Taste for salt. Transfer the mixture to a container and keep refrigerated.
Scott Jurek’s 100-Mile SandwichSandwich
