  • Why do I like it?

I have been looking for a lemon sauce that was vegan and oil free.  This one was posted by my friend, Candi, who I met on Instagram.  I when I saw it, I knew I had to try it.  The sauce was very smooth and creamy.  Great texture.  The taste was lemony but subtle.

It is great on pasta as pictured above.  I have also used it on pizza and plan to use it in many other dishes.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

I soaked the cashews overnight but I'm sure they would be fine soaking for an hour as the recipe indicates.  Additionally, I rinsed and drained the cashews then kept them covered in the fridge for a day or two before making the sauce.
