To make this white sauce, we’re using the most important ingredient listed: raw cashews.
When boiled and blended, cashews turn in to a rich, velvety sauce that’s enhanced by our other ingredients including nutritional yeast, lemon juice, and salt.
The vegan white pasta sauce has a hint of smokiness brought forward by the raw cashews and a shy tang that reminds us of the natural sourness that comes from dairy cheese. But, 100% plant-based, of course.
With only 6 ingredients and whipped up in just minutes, you’ll be making this dish as a staple!
