Spicy Cashew Cream Sauce Recipe

Cashew Cream Sauce Recipe

This spicy cashew cream sauce recipe, served over noodles, is the most cozy dish yet surprisingly healthy! The cream base comes from cashew butter which might sound like a strange option but if you think about the fact that most vegan sauces include cashews it makes total sense! Opting for a cashew butter over cashews themselves allows for a much creamier and smooth base. The other ingredients add tons of flavor such as the nutritional yeast adding a cheesiness, red Thai curry paste adding the warmth to the dish, hot sauce adding a bit of heat and so much more.

This spicy cashew cream sauce recipe would also be delicious served over chicken, veggies or most other entrees that need a sauce. I’m planning to make roasted cauliflower in the next few days and will add this sauce on top!
