Raw vegan cheesy garlic sauce

Post Type

This is the tasty raw vegan cheesy garlic sauce I used on my luleki dish. It’s quick and easy to make and works beautifully on pasta, salads, chips or veggies.

I like recipes that are easy, and this is definitely one those. If you don’t have time to soak the cashews overnight you can soak them in boiling water for an hour to soften them (do note they will lose some of their sweetness). Once you have soaked cashews the rest is fairly easy – it’s an all-items-in-the-blender affair and all you have to do is blend until all ingredients are combined.
