Lightly steamed vegetables of your choice (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, kale)

Sweet peas

Seasonal lettuce

Microgreens (optional)


1 cup raw cashews

3 cups boiling water

2 tsp fresh lemon juice

2 garlic cloves

4 Tbsp nutritional yeast

Salt and pepper to taste

1 Process cashews in a blender until ground (about 1 minute).

2 Carefully add the boiling water, and blend for two minutes.

3 Add the remaining sauce ingredients and blend until well mixed.

4 Place the Alfredo sauce in a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes.
