Quick Cashew Cheese Sauce

by Real Responsible Eating and Living
This light frothy sauce is so easy to make and absolutely delicious. With a high-powered blender like a Vitamix the cashews do not need to be soaked in advance. A regular blender can be used but then the cashews must be soaked in water for at least 4 hours to soften them first. Soaked cashews must be rinsed before using.
