When dairy gets you down, turn to cashews to brighten your day!


This is what you come up with when you're tired and normal thoughts don't come to fruition. I made this recipe up because I have a dairy intolerance and I get the trots when I indulge in it.  The recipe is amazing - I'd trade dairy and the trots any day for this. Its quick and easy too which is a bonus. Enjoy! (sorry about the trots referral...)





  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (its what makes it taste cheesy, if you don't have it then don't worry)

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1 cup tomato/pasta sauce (more or less to your liking)

  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

  • 1/2 tsp dried basil

  • s+p to taste

  • sprinkle of red pepper flakes if you like a little heat

  • Pasta




  1. Cook pasta according to directions on the package. Drain and add pasta back to the pot.

  2. Combine cashews, water, yeast, garlic and s+p to a food processor and blend until a paste is formed. If you want this to be creamier, I suggest soaking the cashews over night.

  3. Add cashew paste to cooked pasta, add the tomato sauce and stir to combine.

  4. Add spices and adjust with s+p.

  5. Cook on medium/low until warmed through.

  6. Serves 2 large portions.
