Gift Idea: Raw Cashew Cheeze Sauce

It's that time of the year-- yummy present ideas galore!
There is truly nothing more splendid than the specialness of a homemade gift whether it be a drawing, painting, or a foodie treasure. For the first part of my new Wednesday series, I share a recipe that can be a potentially delicious holiday twist.
Raw Cashew Cheeze Sauce is one of my favorites. I wanted to make a batch for my friend. Simple to concoct. Just twenty four hours until bliss. One of the greatest benefits of such a sauce is that it can be used in pasta (mac n cheese especially!) and rice dishes, top broccoli or potatoes, cream up soups, and make for a unique grilled cheese sandwich. The savory possibilities are endless.  
Raw Cashew Cheeze Sauce lasts 7-10 days and can be refrigerated. After refrigeration, however, it does stiffen, so leave it at room temperature again if wanting to use.

Raw Cashew Cheeze Sauce Ingredients and Preparation

2 cup cashews, soaked overnight in 1 1/2 cup water
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Drain just a tad bit of the cashew water.
Add all ingredients into blender/processor and puree together.
When sauce reaches a creamy thick consistency, it's ready!

Whipped and smooth like butter.
Handmade labels are always fun!
