Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1 cup Cashews
  • ¾ cup Water
  • cup Nutritional Yeast
  • ½ tsp Onion Powder
  • ¾ tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 pinch Tumeric
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper


  • Soak the cashews in water for about 10 to 20 minutes or soak overnight for a smoother texture. I wait 10 minutes because I am impatient.
  • Save 3/4 cup of the cashew water and drain the rest of the cashew water.
  • Put the cashews in a blender/food processor with the 3/4 cup of water you put aside.
  • Add all spices to the blender.
  • Blend until sauce is creamy and has no bumps.
  • Eat right away or store in the fridge. If stored in the fridge the sauce will be even smoother and tastier the next day!
