Cashew Veggie Sauce

Ideal for serving over dry grains such as toasted millet or quinoa

Cashew Veggie Sauce

I wanted a one-dish meal of toasted millet, veggies, and a mild sauce. The result was this rich, creamy recipe with vegetables in a cashew nut sauce. For lower fat, try chick pea gravy with steamed veggies over toasted millet.

Cashew Veggie Sauce would also work well over quinoa, bulgur, couscous, pasta or millet.
