Savory White Sauce

This creamy white sauce is flavorful and delicious! It's high in calcium, protein, and B vitamins. The cashews make this thicken to a creamy smoothness. It can be served hot or cold. Use as a topping for baked potatoes, a creamy sauce for pasta, a dressing for potato salad, as a sauce for a 'white' pizza, or a raw vegetable dip.

2 cups hot water
3/4 cup cashew nuts
2 Tbsp sesame seeds or 1 Tbsp sesame butter (tahini)

1 1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1 tsp onion powder

1/8 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp dill seed

1 Tbsp parsley flakes, dried

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1. Blend 1/2 cup water and remaining ingredients in blender until very smooth.

2. With blender still on, slowly add remaining water.

3. Pour liquid into saucepan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
4. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes.
