This recipe is oil free, grain free & vegan!
In the winter, I crave comfort foods but can’t make many recipes because they have too many ingredients. So I make my own!
1 cup cashews (cheapest place is Trader Joes)
1 onion, peeled
1 bulb garlic, peeled & separated
small amount plant milk (coconut/almond is best)
Mac & Cheese Sauce:
In a small saucepan –
1 cup unsalted cashews raw or roasted
1 whole onion
1 bulb garlic, peeled & divided
Cover ingredients with water & bring to a boil. Cook on high heat for 20 minutes.
Place in blender/food processor. If you don’t have a high powered blender, it may be helpful to cut the onion at this time. I used a Vitamix. Blend until smooth & creamy. Add just enough plant milk to get the mixture moving but no more, you want to keep it thick.
You can now use your sauce with pasta or vegetables. I love it with green beans. In the oven it will brown and in a pan it will thicken.
Optional additions: Salt to taste, nutritional yeast, pepper.
