~ Produce on Parade

1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 c. +  2 T. water, plus more for soaking
1-2 T. lemon juice
1/4 t. paprika
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. onion powder
1/2 t. turmeric
3/4 t. salt
1/2 c. nutritional yeast
extra water, as needed

Place cashews in enough water to completely submerge them. Cover and refrigerate for two hours.

Drain soaked cashews and place in blender or food processor with remaining ingredients. Blend on high until completely smooth.

Pour sauce into a small saucepan and stir over low for 5-10 minutes or until the sauce thickens to desired consistency.

Notes: This doesn't work as a cheese substitute for our family, but we do like the flavor. So skip it if you're wanting to satisfy a cheese craving, but whip some up and grab veggies, tortilla chips, or pretzels if you're just looking for something flavorful to dip things in.
