Prep Time: 3 hours

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 3.5 cups

 

INGREDIENTS

2 cups Raw Cashews

½ cup Noble Made Mild Buffalo Sauce

1 cup Water

½ tsb Garlic Powder

1/8 tsp Ground Black Pepper

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large bowl, soak 2 cups of cashews in enough water that is 2 inches above the cashews for at least 3 hours. Cashews will expand to 3 cups, so they need room to do so. 
  2. Rinse and drain cashews and add to a high-speed blender along with water, Noble Made Mild Buffalo Sauce, garlic powder and black pepper.
  3. Start by pulsing the blender, moving it to a lower speed and then up higher as cashews begin to break down and form a sauce. You may need to use the plunger attachment or add more water to create the desired sauce consistency.
  4. Remove from blender and heat over medium low heat in a saucepan before using. Since the sauce is made of cashews, it can burn easy, so keep stirring while heating.
  5. Pour over  zucchini noodles, or spaghetti squash noodles and add chicken for a hearty buffalo chicken alfredo pasta!
  6. Store leftover dairy free buffalo alfredo sauce in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
