Creamy Vegan Alfredo Sauce with a hint of White Wine and Lemon

Course: Sauce
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup soaked cashews
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (ex: pinot grigio, chardonnay...)
  • 1 cup yellow onion diced
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. If you don't have pre-soaked cashews, use the quick method by placing the cashews in a small pot, covering with water and bringing that to a boil. Once boiling, remove from heat and cover for 15 minutes, until cashews are soft. Drain when done.

  2. Meanwhile, heat a skillet on medium heat. Add your diced onions and sauté until slightly soft, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup white wine and sauté until all the wine has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

  3. Then, in your food processor or blender, add vegetable broth, soaked cashews, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and your garlic and onion sauté. Blend on high for 2 minutes or until creamy.
