This mushroom sauce can be used in a variety of ways and adds so much flavor to anything you mix it with. It might be the cure for bland vegetables or for those who don’t think vegetables taste good. Try it and see!
Try this as a gravy over mashed potatoes or air fried potatoes, tossed with a mixture of roasted vegetables, mix it with green beans and baked for a casserole, use as a white sauce for pasta or zucchini noodles, or thin it out with broth to make a soup. Get your creative hat on and try this in new ways.
The base of the sauce is steamed cauliflower with onion and garlic and cashews to add extra creaminess. Seasonings and herbs ramp up the flavor and the marinated mushrooms add that umami element that is so satisfying.
I hope you enjoy and find many uses for this delicious sauce.
