Ingredients

1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for 3 hours, then drained
1 1/2 cups cauliflower florets
1/2 cup peeled, diced carrots
1/2 cup water or no-salt-added or low sodium vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Instructions:

Blanch cauliflower and carrots in boiling water until tender, about 5 minutes. Cool.

Place soaked,drained cashews, blanched vegetables and remaining ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth and creamy.

Serve with raw veggies or baked tortilla chips (see note).

I'm confused as to how to make this. "Blanch cauliflower and carrots in boiling water until tender, about 5 minutes. Cool."  Then what?

"Place soaked,drained cashews, blanched vegetables and remaining ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth and creamy."  Then what?

Wow!  Absolutely delicious!  Quick & easy too!  I didn't have time to soak the cashews so I used cashew butter instead.  Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly.  Thank you Victoria Boroda for this recipe!  A favorite for sure!

I've made many no-cheese sauces, and this is hands down, the best.  Followed recipe exactly and turned out just like pic, thick, creamy, and delicious!

Another new favorite!  It is a bit time consuming, but considering the more nutrients you get, well worth it.
