PUMPKIN CASHEW CREAM SAUCE

Pumpkin Cashew Cream Sauce

Alright, the pumpkin faze needs to calm down before I go into pumpkin coma! Actually that’s a lie…keep them coming!

This is a simple, satisfying, and quick dinner recipe that can be enjoyed as is or with a sprinkle of smoked paprika for a little kick. Add whatever herbs (I used chopped dill) for a more complex flavor. This sauce is perfect over any cooked pasta, used as a dip, or poured over fresh veggies.

VEGAN NACHO CASHEW CHEESE

When in doubt, soak cashews, soak cashews again and soak some more cashews! It’s the one most must have ingredient for all vegan foodies. It’s amazing and you’d be very surprised on how much you can do with plain ole cashews. Like this nacho cheese sauce that you’re still in disbelief about.

This best served warm just like any nacho cheese sauce right away or store in a mason jar in the refrigerator for later use.
