This is not exactly made with a particular attention to amines in foods. Avocado is a high amine food (especially as it ripens, so choose fairly unripe avocados), and horseradish is said to be high amine. However, with horseradish, I’m not sure horseradish itself is high in amines, or whether it is usually found creamed, in jars, processed, and having sat on a shelf for weeks, months, or years. To be safer, I am starting with fresh horseradish root. However, this recipe is a “eat at your own risk” recipe, to be sure. Amines abound!
Juice of 1 limes
2 Tbsp fresh grated horseradish, packed
2 Tbsp safflower oil
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne (or fresh chopped chilies)
1/2 C cilantro, chopped
1/4 C cashews, soaked
1/2 C rice milk (or water instead, for Paleo diet)
- Soak cashew in water for 2 hours, then drain.
- In a food processor, puree cashews first, then add all other ingredients except rice milk. Puree until very smooth.
- Add rice milk and continue blending, until mixture is extremely smooth and creamy.
