Vegan Alfredo sauce

Ingredients:

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
Water

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

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
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.
