Are you able to eat seeds? If so, you can always use sunflower seeds to substitute the creaminess of nuts.
If not, you can try using peeled zucchini blended with some salt, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast. I haven't tried this myself, but it sounds like it'll work. Zucchini can also be used as a creamy base for pates and dips instead of nuts.

No problem. :) Mushrooms can be used in certain recipes instead of nuts in place of a meaty texture, also.
