Normally I do a marinara sauce over pasta however today was feeling in an Alfredo mood. Looking for ease, I slightly modified the recipe at http://pinchofyum.com/five-minute-cashew-sauce. It’s a perfect base and can be easily made faster than you can even boil water. NOTE: if you use a Vitamix, this will also heat the sauce which is quite handy.
-2 cups cashews (unsalted)
-1 1/4 cup veggie broth
-2-3 cloves garlic
-dash Coconut Aminos (I used this instead of salt)
1) Soak cashews in water beforehand and drain. 2 hours desired but not required
2) Blend veggie broth, garlic, coconut aminos, and cashews in high-speed blender
3) Add water sparingly as needed until reach desired consistency.
This is an Alfredo base so you can top it with anything however in this case I chose green peas, chipotle powder, basil, and fresh ground pepper.
