There is some kind of ‘magic’ when cashew nuts and nutritional yeast are blended together! Well, the nutritional yeast in this recipe is in the country-style seasoning.. The creaminess of the flavor is just right to compliment the creamy taste and texture of the non-vegan cream sauce.
For those of you who are willing to try a different and healthier version of traditional cream sauce made with butter and dairy milk, give this easy recipe a try. If you don’t have all the ingredients, it’s OK. Just use whatever available ingredients you have, you can add other ingredients if you want. If you need to omit nutritional yeast, you may do so. And If you prefer your kind of cream sauce, go for it. I Just hope that you’d choose the best, and healthy options as possible. Use this use for any recipe that requires cream sauce.
1 cup cashew nuts
2 cups water
2 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoon country-style vegan seasoning or chicken-like seasoning (if not available, you can use only nutritional yeast + extra onion and garlic powder and some herbs)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 TBspoon cornstarch or clear gel
1 TBspoon soy supreme powder
1 teaspoon sea salt, or more-to taste
1 and 1/2 cup water (or a little more if you want thinner sauce)
1. Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until fine and smooth.
2. Pour mixture in a saucepan and bring it to boil. Stirring constantly as it thickens to prevent lumping.
3. Remove from heat when it’s thick.
If thicker sauce is needed, just add more starch dissolved in cool water. Bring it to simmer as it thickens.
Makes about 4 cups.
