Soak cashews for 1-2 hours – or use quick soak method of 30 mins in boiling water
Add cashews, water, nutritional yeast, coconut oil, turmeric and garlic into a blender, and blend on high until all ingredients are mixed thoroughly. Add salt to taste. For a hint of spice add a 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper (totally optional).
While pasta is boiling, sauté some onions in a sauce pan. (Onions are completely optional, but if you like the taste of onions like I do, add em in! You can also saute some mushrooms as well)
Strain and add pasta and mac n cheesy sauce to the onions, and mix together. If you find the sauce is too thick, add some water toward the end
Serve hot with some vegan Parmesan cheese topping!
