Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews (soaked for at least 3 hours up to overnight), drained
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 vegan chicken bouillon cube
  • 1-2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

  • 10-15 medium to large fresh sage leaves, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

  • 1 Saute garlic in olive oil or butter over medium heat.
  • 2 Add in sage until well coated and remove from heat.
  • 3 In a blender, add in the cashews and 3/4 cups water, nutritional yeast and bouillon cube and puree.
  • 4 If the sauce is thick enough, don’t add anymore water but if you want it thinner, add in the remaining water 1 tablespoon at a time until it’s the right thickness.

  • 6 Pour over veggies, pasta, rice or meat substitute and enjoy!
