Whizz until completely smooth
Heat up the oil in a frying pan and add the onion and garlic once hot
Fry for around 10 minutes, until softened and slightly caramelised
Lay out half of the sliced potatoes in a baking dish (I used one measuring 26 cm (10 inch) by 18 cm (7 inch) and 7 cm (2 ½ inch) tall)
Top with half of the fried onions and garlic
Pour over a third of the blended cashew mixture
Lay out the remaining potatoes, remaining fried onions and garlic and sprinkle over the herbs.
Pour over the remaining blended cashew mixture
Cover the baking dish with baking paper or tin foil
Bake in the oven for 1 hour, or until potatoes are soft enough to gently pierce with a fork and the top is golden brown
Keeps covered in the fridge for up to a few days - reheat in the oven until piping hot
Can this recipe be made ahead?
To prepare this ahead, bake it in the oven as normal, then keep covered in the fridge for up to a couple of days. Just reheat in the oven covered with baking paper or tin foil until piping hot.
What type of potatoes should you use?
This dish works with any type of potatoes. If you're not into potatoes, they can be substituted with sweet potatoes, cauliflower or celeriac - just adjust the cooking time accordingly. You can peel the potatoes if you want, but I don't think keeping the skins on affects the texture at all. Plus, it's much easier and more nutritious that way!
