How to make this vegan white sauce
Chop cauliflower into large florets.
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil.
Add cauliflower florets, raw cashews, and whole garlic cloves to a medium pot with a lid and boil (steam) over medium-high heat for 7 to 8 minutes. Strain and add to a high-speed blender with all other ingredients.
Remove the vent cap on the lid of the blender (so the heat can escape). Place a clean kitchen towel over the lid and blend at high speed for about 30 to 45 seconds or until smooth and creamy—salt and pepper to taste.
Enjoy this vegan alfredo sauce with pasta topped with fresh parsley, pour it on a baked potato with chives, or use it to make vegan rasta pasta.
You can pour the sauce from the blender directly over the pasta. Or, transfer it to a small saucepan and warm it just before using.
Leftovers keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
