Cauliflower / Cashew Alfredo

Once upon a time I was a cheese addict struggling to go fully vegan. Then I realized the endless possibilities to making plant based cheeses and here I am over 5 years vegan.

This was a pretty simple cheese sauce and oh so delicious. I would love feedback if anyone makes a recipe I post.


1 cup cashews soaked

1 cup cauliflower florets

1/2 cup of the cooking water saved from preparing the cauliflower

1/3 white onion diced

4 -5 cloves of garlic

1 tsp Dijon mustard

Sea salt and pepper to taste

3 tbsp nutritional yeast ( or I use curry powder in place of that about 2 tsp )

1 1/2 tsp lemon juice


Boil the cauliflower. While the cauliflower is cooking sauté the onion and garlic. Soak the cashews ( you can do this over night) once the cauliflower is cooked I saved the cooking water to blend the sauce. Add all ingredients to high speed blender and blend well to combine. Serve with pasta of choice. I used gluten free.
