Vegan & Dairy Free
You can’t beat a versatile sauce recipe; it’s definitely a kitchen staple. Having a go-to tomato sauce recipe, in my opinion, is an absolute necessity. But by no means does this have to be boring, and those of us who are vegan & dairy free can absolutely still enjoy a rich and creamy sauce, without compromising on flavour.
The cashews, almond milk and nutritional yeast are the magic ingredients here. They’re simple, healthy, and packed with nutrients – all while providing that rich & cheesy flavour and texture.
My top tip for getting this sauce really smooth is to soak the cashews in hot water (this speeds up the soaking process) then process with all the ingredients for a good 1.5 – 2 minutes in a high speed food processor or nutribullet. You don’t even need to remove the tomato skins! Bonus. An electric spice grinder also works too, though you may need to do in two batches depending on how big it is.
