It calls for a base of cashew nut milk, coconut milk and corn or agave syrup. The flavour possibilities thereafter are limited only by one's imagination.

On the savoury front, try The Washington Post's recipe for grilled pork cutlets, drizzled with a coriander and peanut pesto. The pesto is made with peanut oil and toasted sesame oil, which add body and accentuate its nutty flavour.
