  1. Soak cashews in boiling water for 20-30 minutes. (Alternative option: soak overnight if timing allows)
  2. Heat vegan butter and oil in a stockpot over medium heat. Add onion and saute until translucent. Add garlic and saute 30 seconds.
  3. Add snap peas and rice. Let rice start to toast and brown slightly. Add wine to deglaze pan.
  4. Add stock 1/2 c at a time, stirring often, until all is absorbed and rice is cooked. About halfway through cooking, add artichoke hearts and spinach so they cook into the rice slightly.
  5. Combine cashews, lemon juice, and 1/2 c broth in a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth.
  6. Once rice is done, add cashew cream, slowly stirring it in. Add sea salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast. Let simmer to combine.
