I am officially obsessed with turning cashews into cream sauce. It is unbelievable how easy it is to transform cashews into a lovely cream sauce with the assistance of a food processor or high-speed blender. The sauce can easily be savory or sweet with the addition of either vinegar for savory or your choice of sweetener for sweet. The ratio seems to be about 1:1 as well, cashews to liquid.
I was inspired to make a Cashew Curry Sauce to use over blanched cauliflower by The Plant Based Dietitian’s version of Cauliflower Au Gratin. Blanching vegetables is a wonderful technique for making them crisp yet soft enough to digest easily. I highly recommend trying it with cauliflower. You just have to take some florets and put them in boiling water for 2 minutes:
Drain the florets and then spoon a few tablespoons of my Cashew Curry Sauce on top. I have literally eaten bowls of this over the past week:
Here’s the recipe:
Cashew Curry Sauce
1 cup raw, unsalted cashews
1/2 cup unsweetened soymilk
1 tablespoon shredded, unsweetened coconut (optional)
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 – 1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender. Process until combined. Add additional vinegar if needed to achieve a smooth consistency.
The sauce looks like this:
So this post should have been written a good 4 days ago when my computer decided to have a “logic board failure.” Scary-sounding, right?!? I found myself in the Sex & The City episode when Carrie’s computer has the sad Mac screen and crashes. My best friend Valerie happened to be visiting me at the time and accompanied me to the Apple Store where the “geniuses” diagnosed and admitted my sick computer. This morning, I got the happy news that my computer was up and running again! The best part was that I didn’t lose any data (I was a negligent backer-upper just like Carrie in S&TC) and I didn’t have to pay for the nearly $1,000 in repairs since my warranty doesn’t expire for another 8 weeks. Phew!!!
Fortunately, I am between classes this week so I didn’t actually need my computer for that. I did miss blogging though, so I’m happy to be back. Next week I’m starting an Anatomy & Physiology course that will run through mid-August. Can you believe it’s almost summer and what are your exciting plans for this summer?
