Recipe Tips:

I like to heat spices in oil to enhance the flavors, but if you like, you could just whiz everything in the blender and then cook the sauce on medium low. The sauce will thicken as it cooks.

Minced parsley or basil or scallions make a nice garnish for this sauce.

Cheesey sauce will turn out great even if you don't have the exact ingredients and proportions. The nutritional yeast and lemon juice are essential, but instead of cashew butter, you could use ground raw cashews, or almond flour.
