Faux Alfredo Sauce

Introduction

Who says you can't have a cheesy cream sauce on Raw. Excellent over kelp noodles or spiralized zucchini noodles. Who says you can't have a cheesy cream sauce on Raw. Excellent over kelp noodles or spiralized zucchini noodles.
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1/4 cup sunflower seeds*
    1/3 cup water
    1/2 small garlic clove
    1 tsp unpasteurized white miso or 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
    1 tsp fresh lemon juice
    1 sprinkle of cayenne
    1 T nutritional yeast sauce

    * if you want creamier or instead of this low fat version then increase your seeds/ nuts to 1/3 to 1/2 cup and your water to 1/2 cup

    Optional:
    Sprinkle additional Nutritional Yeast on top of your "pasta" if you want a cheesier flavor

    Add Raw Marinated Mushrooms on top of your "pasta"

Tips

Original recipe calls for Raw Macadamia Nuts or Raw Cashews but the Sunflower Seeds are cheaper and taste pretty much the same when blended with all of the ingredients.


Directions

The 60 mins. do not include the soak time of your seeds. It is just for the prep and sitting on the counter to thicken up.

Soak your sunflower seeds in water to plump them up and make them creamier. Drain water before adding to your Processor. I use my Magic Bullet.

Throw all of the ingredients into your small Food Processor except for the Nutritional Yeast. Blend well.

Stir in the 1 Tbsp. Nutritional Yeast into your blended mixture. Let sit on the counter for 1/2 to 1 hour so the "sauce" thickens.
