1 cup cashews, soaked overnight
1 pound cavatappi pasta
½ teaspoon mustard powder
1 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 cup Califia Farms Oatmilk
1/4th cup pasta water Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
Top with toasty Panko breadcrumbs (optional)
Soak your cashews overnight (or boil them day of). Begin by making your cheese sauce. Heat a pot with a drizzle of olive oil and bloom your spices: onion, garlic, paprika, salt, pepper and nutritional yeast for about 2-3 minutes on low heat.
Next, add your oat milk and stir until everything is smooth and dissolved.
Transfer your cheese sauce to a blender with the soaked cashews until a creamy cheese sauce is formed. Toss over your favorite pasta, with a dash of pasta water, salt to taste and top with breadcrumbs!
