Are you in for some comfort food that isn't heavy and will give you a great nutrient boost? This is it! Bonus you can double the creamy cheese sauce and use as a dip and salad topper throughout your week!
The inspiration for this came from two of my favorites sweetlyraw.com and nutritionstripped.com !

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!
