Chef's Notes

  • Vegan. Dairy Free. Soy Free. No Saturated Fat. Loaded with healthy fat, protein, and fiber. While this sauce is a healthy replacement to a traditional cream sauce, you'd never know it. Creamy and delicious, this just might be your new go-to cream sauce base.
  • This is a perfect recipe to use in a cauliflower gratin dish, or any other gratin that requires baking - substitute equal parts cashew cream sauce for cream.
