Start with 1/4, and then taste it the sauce once it's all blended up. If you want more heat, add more flakes! Alternately, if you're SUPER sensitive to heat, you may want to try it without them first!
* I buy my cashews pre-roasted. If yours aren't, stick them in a 400 degree oven for a few minutes, until lightly browned. Toasting the nuts really adds flavor!
*** Add almond milk to desired consistency.
