Tired of plain ole’ chicken or veggies? Mix it up this week and add a beautiful, delicious, and super good-for-you sauce to spruce up your dish!
BASIL CASHEW CREAM SAUCE
Enough sauce for 2 chicken breasts or 2 cups cooked veggies.
1/2 cup raw unsalted whole cashews
1/4 Cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 Cup no salt added vegetable stock
2 cloves crushed garlic
½ cup basil, washed with Eat Cleaner® Fruit & Vegetable Wash, roughly chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt & Pepper to taste
1) Place the cashews, coconut milk, vegetable stock and crushed garlic in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add basil and lemon and process for an additional 20 seconds until smooth.
2) Spoon over cooked chicken breasts and simmer together for about 6-7 minutes. As a vegan swap, spoon over cooked cauliflower, tempeh or eggplant and mixed vegetables or pasta.
3) Top with chopped fresh basil and adjust salt and pepper to taste.
