Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F.
  2. Spread the cashew nuts out on a small roasting tray.
  3. Roast the nuts in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden. (You may want to shake-and-rotate the tray halfway through.) Set aside to cool completely.
  4. Once the nuts have cooled, place them into a mini food processor, along with the nutritional yeast flakes and minced garlic.
  5. Add the water and blitz until as smooth as possible, scraping down the sides of the jug several times.
  6. Place the mixture into the fridge overnight. The next day, blitz again until smooth. Season the mixture with salt and white pepper.
  7. Heat the sauce up in a pan before serving. If it is too thick, let it down with a dash of water. Once hot, serve immediately.
  8. Delicious over cooked broccoli.

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it’s 6.1g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) – and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
