Creamy 'Cheese' Sauce

  • 1.25 cup raw cashews soaked in water for 1 hour then drained
  • 1/3 cup water filtered
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice or lime would work if you don't have lemons
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • sea salt to taste, I add pink Himalayan

Raw Noodles & Added Veggies

  • 3 whole carrots spiraled I like using purple for color!
  • 3 medium zucchini yellow squash works too!
  • 4 asparagus stalks cut lengthwise and blanched quickly
  • 1 bell pepper julianned I like red for color pop!
  • 1/4 cup raw pepitas or pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp raw hemp seeds
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes to give this a kick


Creamy 'Cheese' Sauce

  • Soak Cashews first (for an hour) and drain
  • Add soaked cashews along with all other 'cheese' sauce ingredients into a high speed blender. The amounts will give you a little bit extra to use as a veggie dip throughout your week!
  • Blend until combined and to your desired thickness, you can always add a little more water until you get consistency you like! I like mine thicker to use for dips!

'Noodles' & Veggies

  • Spiralize your zucchini and your carrots.
  • Cut and blanch your asparagus (optional if you have it!) Doesn't take more than a minute in the boiling water then cool immediately in cool water.
  • Julienne your pepper.
  • Assemble! Mix as much or as little 'cheese' sauce with your veggies and then top with pepitas, hemp seeds, bell pepper flakes and salt to taste! If you want to make it 'cheesier' you can top with additional nutritional yeast!
