Top That, Stop That

Savory Cashew Cream Sauce

1. Why did they stop showing Teen Witch at Halloween?
2. I don't know if this is a cop out post but I'm doing it anyway.
3. I like counting.

In my opinion cashew cream sauce is a common sauce used in vegan cooking and usually one of the first that a new vegan learns to cook. It's crazy easy to make.

For this recipe you need a coffee grinder. A word on coffee grinders...this is one of those appliances that's totally worth having in your house, even if you're not a coffee drinker. They're cheap and small and make a world of difference when it comes to making fresh foods. Use one to grind spices, nuts, seeds, etc. into a fine powder for sauces and other recipes that might call for finely ground items.

1/2 cup of unsweetened soy milk
1/2 cup of water
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/4 cup of ground cashews (grind into a powder in your coffee grinder)
A pinch of salt and pepper

In a small pot bring the soy milk, water, and nutritional yeast to a boil. Whisk in the ground cashews and add the salt and pepper.

Boil down until it is at a slightly more liquid state than you would like it. Take the pot off the heat and when the sauce cools it will thicken.

I used it to top off one of the pecan crusted cutlets that I made yesterday. Yum!
