Dairy free Alfredo sauce:
1 cup of raw, unsalted cashews. Soaked in hot water for 20-30 minutes.
1/2 cup of cold water for blending
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
1 garlic clove
Juice if half a lemon
3/4 tsp unrefined sea salt
Once cashews have soaked, drain and rinse under cold water until water runs clear.
Place all the ingredients in a high-speed blender.
Blend until smooth, transfer to a glass jar and refrigerate.
