This mushroom sauce is pure magic. It tastes likes it has an entire container of whipping cream in it, yet it’s 100% dairy-free vegan. You will LOVE it!



  • 1 cup cashews, soaked*
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1.5 lb crimini or button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper


  1. Add the olive oil to a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are brown, about 15 minutes.
  2. Add the soaked cashews, garlic, sea salt, pepper, 1 1/2 cups of water and a scoop of the cooked mushrooms to a food processor or blender and blend on high until smooth.
  3. Pour the sauce into the pan with the rest of the mushrooms. Bring the sauce to a boil then remove from the heat.


Soak cashews in water for 4 to 24 hours*

If you have a high-powered blender you can get away with soaking the cashews for less than 4 hours.
