Instructions
  1. Soak cashews in 1/2 cup water at room temperature for 3 - 4 hours OR follow one of the quicker soaking methods below.
  2. Drain cashews, add in 1/2 cup fresh water, and blend with an immersion stick blender or food processor until smooth.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Cook the bacon, then crumble and set aside.
  5. Over medium heat in a medium-size skillet, heat up the olive oil. Then add in the spring greens, red onion, and lime juice and saute for approximately 5 minutes, until greens are wilted and onions are softened.
  6. Remove greens from the heat, and use a fork and knife to dice them into smaller pieces.
  7. Combine all the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl: cashew cream, bacon crumbles, diced, wilted greens, eggs, tomatoes, green chilies, and spices.
  8. Spray 9" pie pan with non-stick cooking spray, then pour in the quiche batter.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes, or until eggs are set and not jiggly.
  10. Serve with cilantro and sliced avocado.
Recipe Notes

Most grocers (HEB, Whole Foods, etc.) now carry bacon that is nitrate/nitrite free and sugar-free/MSG free.  There are even microwaveable selections available now!!

METHODS FOR SOAKING CASHEWS
There are three methods for soaking:
Overnight Soak—Cover one cup of raw cashews with cold water in a jar and let them soak overnight on the counter. In the morning, drain, rinse, and proceed with the recipe. This is great for when you need those cashews...LATER!
Quick Soak—Pour boiling water over one cup of raw cashews in a jar and let them soak for about an hour before draining and rinsing. This is great for when you need those cashews NOW!
Really Quick Soak—Mix one cup of raw cashews with three cups of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 10 minutes. Drain, rinse, and proceed with your recipe. Sometimes this method doesn’t result in quite as smooth a result. You also might get a weird gray (or sometimes even purple!) gunky film on top with this method, just rinse it off before proceeding. This is great for when you need those cashews RIGHT NOW!
