1 1/2 onion diced and sweated (on the stovetop)

4 garlic cloves

2 cups unflavored almond or organic soymilk

3 Tbsp. Nutritional Yeast

1 tsp. white miso

Pepper to taste

Fresh herbs: Thyme, rosemary, sage, parsley to finish


Saute onions and garlic with just enough water to cover the pan.

Steam fry until onions are translucent.

Add to blender with soaked cashews, soy/nut milk and rest of ingredients.

Blend, adjusting thickness to desired consistency.

Add fresh herbs to finish.

This sauce will reduce and continue to thicken with time.
