    How necessary is the nutritional yeast to the flavor? Any suggestions for a substitute ingredient?

    @Kelly Smith, What is is about the nutritional yeast you don’t like? It give the sauce the Parmesan cheese flavor. Not sure what would create the same taste.

    @Amy, No dislike. It just recently came up on my daughter’s allergy testing results, so I am trying to be careful. Thanks.

    If you thin this out, would it be close to the taste and texture of alfredo sauce? Would you add anything else?

    @Karen L, You can thin it out a little. I was never much of a white sauce eater, but alfredo has a buttery taste. You might want to add in some melted Earth Balance. Of course, it wouldn’t be raw then but it would still be yummy.

    This looks like the PERFECT pasta sauce. I can see why Mr. Nate would gobble it up :)

    Yes, I am with you thank god for nuts. Saving grace since I gave up dairy. I love sauces like this. I made something kinda similar this week to serve over vegan tacos.

    @Beth @ Tasty Yummies, Oh yum!! I put this on my tacos too. If I was going to make it strictly for tacos, I’d leave out the nooch and use some other flavors but it was creamy and delish! What did you put in yours?

    I’m curious does it taste really nutty or more like alfreado? I have picky ones in my house also how necessary is the nutritional yeast? can i sub something else?

    @Nancy, It’s not nutty. If you’ve ever had cashews, they’re pretty mild and take on other flavors well. What were you thinking of using instead of nutritional yeast? It creates the Parmesan-like flavor.

    My boyfriend is raw and he makes this a lot. Try adding a clove or two of garlic. It’s pretty fantastic!

    @Erin from Long Island, Garlic would be yummy! So, your boyfriend is raw but you’re not? Have you learned to cook for him?

    @Amy,
    Yeah, it was a bit of a challenge at first but I like trying new things and while I am not raw or vegan, I eat so much produce I might as well be sometimes.

    Oh boy, I’m low-dairy and this sounds fanfreakintastic! Can’t wait to try this as a homemade alfredo-style sauce . . . my favorite but it’s so hard to find any in the stores, let alone a good quality one. Thanks for the inspiration!

    @Sabrina M., Enjoy!! It would be great as an alfredo-style sauce.

    This looks great, Amy! I LOVE parmesan cheese and my son has a life threatening allergy to dairy. Thank you!!! (Well, he’s allergic to cashews so I will try macadamias).

    @Adrienne @ Whole New Mom, Macas would be great. YUM!

    We’re not only dairy-free but also allergic to tomatoes. So pizza basically becomes gluten-free crust. Do you think with some garlic that this would also work as a pizza sauce?

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Lisa, Oh yea, I’m sure it would be great. You could throw some spices in there too. I wouldn’t leave it in the oven too long, and I’d probably add a little more water to make it slightly thinner. But it would be yummy.

    Dear Amywhofeedsmewell,
    I put this sauce into my veggie soup last night and my family gobbled it up. It gave it such a buttery taste! Going to soak some more cashews now…
