Pine nut crema is from Terry Hope Romano’s excellent book, Viva Vegan! This aromatic sauce is just the thing to soothe your tongue when paired with a spicy dish.

 12 oz silken tofu
 ½ cup pine nuts
 3 tbsp lime juice
 1 tbsp oil
 2 tsp corn starch
 1 tsp minced garlic
 1 tsp salt

Gather your ingredients! The pine nuts are particularly important for this recipe. Like cashews, pine nuts will give a creamy texture when blended, but they have a unique flavor. They taste rather like a forest smells!
