Creamy Dreamy Five Minute Garlic Cashew Sauce

December 19, 2017
Blog post

I have never liked cashews. But this Garlic Cashew Sauce is a serious game changer! I am honestly incredibly upset that it took me 34 years to find out about this stuff!!

It’s totally not what I expected when I heard “cashew sauce”. It isn’t at all nutty and it takes on the flavor of whatever is added to it perfectly. I can remember the first time I tried cashew sauce….I cried. CRIED! It was dreamy, it was creamy, silky, savory + had my brain going in every direction of how I could use this as a base for so many amazing variations of this sauce! Vegan or not, you will be OBSESSED!

Cutting out dairy was a little bit of a challenge because, well, I LOVED butter + sour cream + cottage cheese + cream cheese + ice cream + all the things creamy in this world. But I had no idea that there were other alternatives out there. Alternatives that are not only better for you + for the environment, but could even taste, dare I say, BETTER than my OG dairy products?!

I’m not lying when I say we make this sauce several times a week and use it on almost everything! I know it’s just a sauce, but I feel so empowered by this simple, 4 ingredient condiment and know you will too.

This sauce is amazing poured over: roasted vegetables, as a dip for chips or raw veggies, spread on a sandwich, drizzled all over a fresh baked pizza, mixed into a pot of mashed potatoes, melted into a quesadilla, or just grab a spoon and indulge!! Ok, maybe that last option is a little much. I have never done that…..except for, that one time.

Enough chatter, lets make some sauce!!

All you need:

So simple. You’ll need to soak the cashews in hot water for at least 20 minutes to soften them up. If you have a high powered blender, soaking is not necessary. Then you just throw all the ingredients into your blender and blend till creamy + smooth. Seriously….thats really it! You can also add nutritional yeast for a more ‘cheesy’ flavored sauce. Honestly, the possibilities are endless.

    In this awesome pattern of things you actually get a B+ for effort and hard work. Where exactly you confused me was in your particulars. As they say, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be much more correct here. Having said that, allow me inform you exactly what did do the job. The text can be extremely powerful and this is possibly the reason why I am making the effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, even though I can certainly notice the jumps in reason you make, I am not really sure of exactly how you appear to unite your ideas which make the conclusion. For right now I shall yield to your issue but wish in the near future you link the dots much better.

      Oh you will love it! There is a link in the recipe to order some on amazon. But to snag them locally, you can find at Trader Joe’s, Lidle, Harris Teeter, Whole Foods! They just haven’t been roasted or salted and will say “raw” on the package. ☺️
