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.
Slices of veggies of your choice
- 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
