Ingredients
  

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1, 14oz package spicy Italian sausage*
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 batch cashew cream (1 cup soaked cashews blended with ½ cup water)
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese**
  • 14oz can fire-roasted tomatoes, drained
  • 4 oz fresh greens such as kale or spinach roughly chopped

Instructions
 

  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat and sear the sausages 2-3 minutes per side until heated through and slightly charred. Remove from the skillet and chop into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  • Heat the same oil over medium-high heat and add the diced onions. Cook for 3-4 minutes until soft and slightly browned.
  • Add the garlic and Italian seasoning cooking for an additional 30 seconds until fragrant but not burned.
  • Add the cashew cream and mozzarella cheese. Stir continuously to prevent a film from forming. Cook until incorporated and melty about 2-3 minutes.
  • Once the sauce is thick and melted add the drained tomatoes and chopped greens. Stir to combine and allow the greens to wilt.
  • Remove the dip from the heat and add in the chopped sausage. Stir to incorporate and warm the sausage.
  • Serve warm with your favorite chips or toss with pasta.
