Cashew Cream
If you would have asked me when I first went vegan if there was any way to really compete with dairy versions of macaroni and cheese or fettucini alfredo, I would have honestly told you no. Giving up those foods is a small price to pay for the benefits of a plant-based diet, but buttery cheesy cream sauce has no vegan counterpart. Those words I am now happy to eat.

  1. Mix in high-speed blender. Taste. If it’s bland for your pallet, add more yeast flakes or another tsp. of ground mustard. Maybe more salt.
  2. Add cashew cream sauce to steamed veggies, pasta, bread or soup. My favorite treat is to use as a white cream sauce on pizza or as an alfredo sauce over spaghetti squash.
