Hi friends!! As you know : today is Meatless Monday so I want to show you a nice meat replacement recipe!

  1. 80 g Cashews / 2/3 cup ( set into a water bath overnight). 
  2. 2 TBSP Yeast Flakes 
  3. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
  4. 1 glove of Garlic 
  5. A pinch of Salt 
  6. 150 ml/ Half a cup of Water 
  7. 100 g / 3,5 Ounce Tofu 
  8. 200g / 7 ounce Pasta 


Start by cooking the pasta! In the mixer, combine the cashews, yeast flakes, garlic powder, salt &pepper and Pasta Water. Mix until its a smooth paste. 


Heat up your pan over medium heat, add the garlic and tofu (small pieces)  and sprinkle some salt so it's baked nice and crispy. Add the creamy sauce and your dish is basically. 




- Enjoy, xo Sarah.
