Savory, Vegan Pasta Sauce
You can use this sauce on virtually anything savory. Consider making a small batch every Sunday to use throughout the week. It is extremely versatile- use on bean and grain dishes, a dip for raw chopped veggies or a salad dressing.
This recipe calls for a few things which may not be available at most supermarkets (miso paste, nutritional yeast), however any natural food market carries them. Recipes call for small amounts so they will last and are highly recommended to elevate the flavor of your dishes.
Our suggestion: coat raw chopped veggies with this sauce and serve in lettuce cups with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
Add all ingredients to your food processor or high speed blender. Run until sauce is smooth and creamy. Add more water to thin sauce out.
