This sauce does not include dairy cream–only creamy cashew goodness! So, this is good for those who do not tolerate milk products, or if you are trying to eat more plant based, or just enjoy cashews! This is a healthier alternative to alfredo sauce.
The first trick is finding raw cashews. Luckily, I spotted them in the bulk foods section of my grocery store. You will need to soak the cashews overnight in water, or if you don’t have the time or patience for this (like me), you can microwave them in water for 2 minutes. The fast track method doesn’t give you the smoothest cashew cream, but it works.
I added natural chicken sausage to mine for some protein. You could grill chicken and add it, or even shrimp, or tofu (for a vegetarian/vegan recipe).
