Vegan Alfredo sauce


1 lb tofu (silken)
1 cup raw cashews
1/2-2/3 cup lemon juice
Fresh basil leaves (from 2 leaves to 1 cup, depending on the taste and color you are looking for)
1-3 garlic cloves
Salt to taste

Blend all ingredients until very smooth. The sauce should be ever so slightly more watery than you want the finished product to be. This is a matter of taste, but try for the consistency of dairy alfredo sauce. Put the sauce into a pot. Heat on low heat until warm enough to serve. Serve with sauteed veggies as below.

Veggie ingredients:

Slices of veggies of your choice
- broccoli
- radishes
- string beans
- spinach, etc (not all at once, vary color and texture).
- Pine nuts (optional but very good)
- A little white wine cooked in can be good

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
