This is great for so many things - on top of roasted veggies, pasta,on pizza, on tacos and this list goes on and on.
Soak 1 cup of cashews for 2+ hours in water. Drain
Add ⅓ cup of nutritional yeast flakes. (These can be found at health food stores like Trader Joe’s or Sprouts)
½ cup of almond/cashew milk.
Teaspoon or two of chopped garlic
Salt and pepper- few shakes
Crushed Red Pepper- few shakes
Squeeze of half a lemon or few drops of lemon essential oil.
Put all ingredients in the blender and blend.
If you want to spice it up, add 1-2 tbl. of red curry paste=really delish!
I always taste it and add ingredients depending on taste and how thick the sauce is. If I want it “cheesier” I will add more nutritional yeast. If it’s too thick, I’ll add some more almond milk or even water. Needs more of a pop, I’ll add a bit more crushed red pepper. Serves 4-6
