Mac and No Cheese
1 cup raw, unsalted cashews
2 tsp lemon juice
½ cup water
¾ tsp sea salt (or ½ tsp miso)
1 clove garlic
¼ white onion
1 tsp Dijon mustard
freshly cracked black pepper to taste
½ -1 bag favourite gluten free pasta (such as Tinkyada or Gogo Quinoa)
1-2 cups broccoli/peas/asparagus
Soak cashews overnight in lukewarm water. If you’re in a rush soak in boiling water for 30 minutes. Finely chop onion and garlic and sauté in a little water until translucent and soft. Bring a pot of water to boil as onion and garlic are cooking. Add pasta and cook according to package (approx 10-12 minutes). Stack a colander on top to steam your vegetables. Drain cashews and toss in a blender with onion, garlic and all other ingredients. Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and add more seasoning if desired. Drain pasta. Cover pasta and vegetables with sauce and toss.
TIP: Got company? Serve with fettuccini noodles and top with crispy bacon bits!
