Dairy Free Cashew Cream Sauce

Dairy Free Cashew Cream Sauce simple and so delicious the perfect sauce or dressing to add to any recipe.

It’s easy to make, it requires just 6 ingredients, and it’s every bit as rich and creamy as sour or heavy cream. I love to add it to creamy pasta sauces, top it onto potatoes, serve it over burrito bowls, eggs , and more!

Raw soaked cashews make it thick and creamy, water helps it blend, garlic adds richness, and apple coder vinegar and salt give it a bright, tangy flavor. To make it, just add the ingredients to a blender, and puree until smooth. 

Simple, easy to make and so versatile. You want to use raw not roasted cashews, even if you have a high power blender I still like to soak the cashews. Instead of having to wait for hours for the the cashews to soak I get a pot filled with water and bring it to a boil. Then add the cashews and boil for 10 minutes then remove from the heat and allow to cool.

This sauce is like a base to so many opportunities and flavors. You can easily put a mexican twist and add some chipotle adobo, or Italian and add some pizza seasoning or a mediterranean flair with some Zatar.

This sauce will last a week in the fridge. Happy Saucing XOXO
