CASHEW CREAM VODKA SAUCE
As many of you know, pasta is one of my favorite comfort foods. This sauce tastes so similar to vodka sauce and you won’t miss the dairy. Serves 4.
INGREDIENTS:1 box of grain-free spaghetti noodles, I like Jovial
1/2 C raw cashews, boiled for 20 minutes
1 1/2 C brown onion, chopped
5 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/4 C olive oil
2/3 C vodka
1 (20 OZ) can crushed tomatoes
Handful of fresh basil
1/2 C dairy-free Violife Parmesan Cheese, sub nutritional yeast here
1/2 tsp JF Spicy Salt, to taste
PROCESS:Boil the raw cashews for 20 minutes. In a large pan on medium heat, sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil for about 5-7 minutes until caramelized. Add in the vodka and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Once the alcohol has cooked off, add in the crushed tomatoes and let simmer for another 10 minutes. While cooks down, make your spaghetti according to the box. In a blender, combine the contents of the pan with the soaked raw cashews, a handful of fresh basil, and dairy-free Violife Parmesan Cheese. Blend until smooth. Season with JF Spicy Salt. In a pan on low heat, combine the pasta with the sauce and cook until it is evenly coated. Serve with fresh basil and more Violife Parmesan Cheese.
