Recipe Notes

As mentioned, you can easily roast beets for use in this recipe (see directions above). However, you can find beets already cooked or roasted as well.
Also mentioned above is that you will need to soften the cashews by soaking them.
To soften the cashews simply place them into a bowl and cover them with water. Soak the cashews for about ten to 15 minutes and then drain the water (note that you can soak them overnight however, I would place them in the refrigerator).
