This recipe makes a creamy, nutty, cashew cheese sauce that we can’t get enough of. The secret that will take your cashew sauce to a whole new level is to roast the cashews. Place raw cashews into the toaster oven, on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, and roast for 3-5 minutes (or until cashews are browned).
Then, place all ingredients into a food processor – or high speed blender – and process on high for 2 minutes, until the cashew sauce is thick and creamy.
We always use this recipe for our BEST tofu scramble because it adds so much delicious flavor, but we can only start to imagine all the dishes this vegan cashew nut sauce can be used on. Some other ideas include pasta, roasted vegetables, seitan, as a dip for chips or veggies, and baked potatoes. Get creative!
