To make cashew pesto, add all ingredients into a high-speed blender, hand blender or food processor and pulse until creamy smooth.
Add the oil gradually, first pour in about ¼ cup and increase until ½ cups (depends on desired consistency you want to achieve).
Season the cashew pesto with a little salt and black pepper while blending. You may not need to add more. Transfer everything to a bowl or sealed jar and store in the fridge for up to 2 days.
