Onion Dip

1 large onion
2 T. olive oil
1 c. raw cashew pieces
dash pepper, cayenne, nutmeg
1/2 t. salt
1 T. nutritional yeast
1/2 c. soy milk
1/4 c. vegenaise
2 T. lemon juice
1 t. miso
green onion to garnish, or crispy fried shallots, or better yet both

Cook onions in olive oil over medium-low heat until they're sweet and brown and melty. In the meantime, grind nuts, along with the salt, pepper, cayenne, nutmeg, and nutritional yeast in a food processor until quite fine. Add the onion, lemon juice, soymilk, and vegenaise and blend until smooth and creamy. Refrigerate until ready to use. Garnish with green onion and/or fried shallot. Serve with potato chips.
