  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 large lemon juiced (approx 2.5 tablespoons)
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Optional Garnish


  • Add all your ingredients to a powerful blender, like a Vitamix and process on high until smooth and creamy. Serve with your favourite noodles or veggies.
  • Sprinkle some vegan parmesan cheese into your sauce, if desired.


If you do not have a powerful blender, soak your cashews in boiling hot water for 30 minutes first. Then drain and add to your blender along with all remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
