Vegan Sauce Recipes: Creamy Sundried Tomato Pasta Sauce

Back when I was a vegetarian, creamy pasta dishes were one of my favorite indulgences. After a few failed attempts, I stumbled upon a delicious vegan alternative! There are many cashew-based creamy sauces, but this rosemary and oregano-flavored version with sundried tomatoes will knock your socks off. This vegan version also offers hefty nutritional benefits with protein, vitamin B12, zinc and copper. Enjoy!

Directions

1. Start by soaking your cashews for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. 2. Bring salted water to a boil and start cooking the pasta of your choice (pictured is linguine). 3. Add cashews along with their soaking water to a blender, then add sundried tomatoes and vegetable broth. I prefer to use the sundried tomatoes that come in olive oil, however dried are perfectly fine. 4. Add in nutritional yeast, garlic cloves, and spices and finish by squeezing in the juice of 1/4 lemon. 5. Blend until desired thickness is reached, adding water or broth if sauce is too chunky at first. 6. Drain pasta and dress with sauce. Tip: Goes great with sauteed mushrooms and zucchini! Enjoy!
