Yield 4 1x


  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup Whole Raw or Roasted Cashews
  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 medium white onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth (or water)
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. First, preheat oven to 400ºF and bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
  2. Next, place cashews into a large bowl and pour boiled water over the cashews. Let sit for at least 20 minutes.
  3. Prepare head of garlic by chopping off one end and placing on a piece of tin foil. Generously drizzle with olive oil and then wrap with the tin foil, removing as much air as possible. Roast at 400ºF for 30 minutes.
  4. Next, prepare the rest of the white wine pasta sauce by placing 1 cup of dry white wine and 1/2 chopped white onion in a small saucepan. Turn heat to high and bring to a boil. Then, turn to low and let simmer for about 15 minutes or until it reduces by half.
  5. Next, transfer white wine and onion mixture into a high-speed blender. Once roasted garlic is done cooking, remove it from the tin foil and squeeze roasted garlic cloves into the high-speed blender.
  6. Add the rest of the white wine pasta sauce ingredients and blend on high for at least 60 seconds or until pureed.
  7. Pour over your favorite pasta or grain!
