Perfect quick & easy pasta sauce, also delicious on dosas or crepes, or veggies, served gently heated or raw.
Raw vegan basil cashew sauce came from a lovely bunch of basil I got at a FL farmers market in JANUARY. How could an Iowan pass that up?

It's fine to soak the cashews all day or overnight - just put them in the fridge.
This is a raw sauce, but can be heated if you want to serve it warm. Heat on medium low just until hot, stirring. Do not boil. It will thicken and become darker green as it cooks.
Basil turns dark when cut and processed, while parsley maintains a bright green color, so that's a necessary ingredient.
This sauce is mild flavored. Sharp or hot seasonings like ginger, mustard, cayenne or garlic would also be good in this recipe, for more of a kick.
