1 head of broccoli
Elbow pasta or any pasta of choice (I like chickpea or brown rice elbows)
For the sauce:
1 cup of raw cashews
1/2 of a finely chopped small sweet potato (for orange color)
1/4 of chopped red onion
2 chopped cloves of garlic (or skip and use garlic powder)
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
3/4 cup of nutritional yeast (or more to taste)
Salt to taste
Water for blending
Boil sweet potato and broccoli about 7 min or until soft, drain and set aside. Save the pot for your pasta.
Add cashews, sweet potato, and remaining sauce ingredients to a high powered blender. Blend adding water until creamy and adding salt or nutritional yeast until desired taste.
Boil water for your pasta following package instructions. Drain and put back in the pot. Add broccoli and desired sauce amount mixing until all pasta is fully covered.
Serve warm with an extra sprinkle of nutritional yeast and enjoy!
