  1. This recipe is so versatile! You can use any combination of beans, nuts, squash or tofu. Just use what you have and experiment. Of course, darker beans, nuts and squash will affect the color. But it will all taste great!
  2. Soak raw cashews for 4-6 hours (or overnight) until they are plump and white. Rinse. (Helpful hint: buy organic raw nuts in bulk, soak them all at once, and store in freezer so they are ready for use.
  3. Place all ingredients in a high speed blender. Start with less water and add to achieve desired consistency.
  4. Serve over spaghetti squash, or pasta of choice. I prefer the high-protein, gluten free pastas as they have tons of fiber. But whatever you prefer and your family will eat is fine.
  5. Sauté garlic and a bit of olive oil with mushrooms, onions, broccoli, tomatoes, cauliflower, peppers, spinach and any other veggies go well with alfredo sauce.
  6. Drain the pasta, add alfredo sauce and sautéed veggies. Bon appetite!

Instructions
  1. Basically, you need 6-7 cups of chopped vegetables. Follow my recipe or substitute with what you have. Reduce cooking times for frozen, canned and leafy greens.
  2. Saute garlic, mushrooms, red bell pepper and onions with a few tablespoons of water to prevent sticking for 6-8 minutes. Add kale and frozen peas, cook for 1-2 minutes and remove from heat.
  3. Blend cashews, beans, water, garlic, yeast flakes, lemon juice, onion powder, thyme, salt and pepper for several minutes until creamy and smooth.
  4. Based on your preferences, simply pour cream sauce over vegetables and serve from the skillet. Top with garlic tofu, bread crumbs, croutons and fresh or dried herbs of choice. For a traditional presentation, transfer vegetables and cream sauce to a casserole dish, top with bread crumbs and garlic tofu and bake uncovered at 400 degrees until casserole is toasty on top and heated through the middle. Add fresh or dried herbs and serve.
