Ingredients:

  1. 1 tsp olive oil
  2. 4 cloves garlic
  3. 1 pound asparagus (rough ends removed, cut into 2 inch pieces)
  4. 1 pound spinach (washed well)
  5. ⅓ cup water
  6. 1 cup raw cashews or sunflower seeds
  7. 3 Tbsps capers, with brine
  8. Salt to taste
  9. 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

  4. Add spinach mixture and the rest of the ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
  5. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
