This is my “go to” sauce for everything. I use it instead of mayo for making coleslaw, as a salad dressing, as a creamy sauce in a chicken and broccoli bake, as an alternative “indulgent” creamy sauce over white fish,  with chicken and veg, as a creamy pasta sauce and many more! It is so easy to make, so tasty and can be stored in the fridge for a week and added to any dish to make it more tasty!

Ingredients:
(Makes approximately 6 portions of sauce)

100g Cashew Nuts (Soaked Overnight or for at least 5 hours)

2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast*

1 tbsp of Coconut oil

1 Stock Cube (Chicken or Vegetable)

250-300mls Water

*Note: You can buy Nutritional Yeast in health food shops such as Holland and Barrett.

Method: 

1) Soak the cashew nuts in cold water overnight (or for at least 3 hours).

Store in the fridge and use cold instead of mayo for things such as coleslaw or as a salad dressing, or heat up and use over meat or veg.
