Garlic Sauce

Pin It!



Ingredients

1/2 package of extra firm silken tofu
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup chopped red onion
3 tsp nutritional yeast
2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup cashew milk
1/4 cup veggie stock
1 tbsp garlic plus seasoning
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 inch piece of jalapeño pepper ( optional )
Salt to taste

Method

Purée all ingredients in a high speed blender or mixer till creamy smooth.
Serve cold or warm
Today I served it up hot with edamame noodles, spiralized zucchini ( aka--zoodles) , sautéed shitaki mushrooms & sautéed asparagus + a little chopped red onion. 
I thought about making this into a primavera or even a mushroom sauce but this is what transpired tonight.
