Serves: 2
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets, chopped small
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup hulled hemp seeds or raw cashews
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup plant based milk or water
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients except for the lemon juice in a pot over medium heat. Bring to a boil then reduce heat slightly to a simmer, cover and cook for 13-15 minutes until cauliflower florets are completely soft and falling apart.
  2. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes then pour the mixture into a blender and add in the lemon juice before blending until creamy.
  3. The sauce makes enough for two portions of pasta, or about 8 oz of dry pasta and it will keep in a jar in the fridge for 3-5 days. Add to pasta right before serving.
