Anyone tried this using an alternate raw butter (not almond)?

Oh, man! This is sooooo good! I used Trader Joe's Orange Champagne Vinegar instead of the Lemon Basil.

I didn't have the lemon basil vinegar so I just added fresh basil and lemon juice to apple cider vinegar. I also used the garlic raw. And used peanut butter because it is what I had. So delicious!

This is fantastic! I had to use substitutions though. I used black beans and AC vinegar with lemon juice (thank you for that suggestion)
I can't wait to try with lentils... Even though the black beans worked very well. I also like that the recipe proportions make a small batch so if it's just one person, it's the perfect amount. My non etl wife loved it also!

Any tips for roasting only 4 cloves of garlic? Seems like time and energy wasted on that.

You can roast many more cloves in the oven at the same time and keep for other recipes.  Or just boil the peeled cloves in water for 5-6 minutes (or more if still too strong to your taste) -yields not exactly a roasted flavor but very flavorful.
