Directions:

  • In a medium saucepan, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion and stir until onion is translucent.

  • Add in grated potato, garlic, onion powder, garlic powder, mustard, sea salt and red pepper flakes. Stir for about a minute.

  • Add in water and soaked cashews. Let mixture simmer for ~8 minutes or until potatoes are completely tender.

  • Add mixture into food processor. Add nutritional yeast, apple cider vinegar and additional water as needed (depending on how thick you like it). 

  • Taste and add additional salt or nutritional yeast as needed. I love the flavor of nutritional yeast so topped my pasta with extra.

  • Add sauce to pasta and add some broccoli for a little extra fiber!
