Creamy Pumpkin Mac & Cheese Sauce
I’m currently obsessed with all things pumpkin these days. Those Fall vibes are going strong at my house! Wreaths, soy scented candles, pumpkin decor pieces and pillows! We have it all covered over here! My kids have always been used to decorating throughout the year for various occasions or putting out seasonal decorations. If I’m late getting the house decorated then they usually just take matters into their own hands and get it done themselves. Off to the basement they go into the endless bins of seasonal decor we keep put away. We reuse our decor year after year and only add a couple new pieces every year. This time of year is cozy and comforting and we all look forward to the Fall season at our house.
I’ve been craving comfort food like pasta & hearty soups these days as the weather gets crisp. I’ve been getting my usual delivery of Organic Pumpkin Pureè from Amazon. I have loads of pumpkin to create new recipes with now. Simple things like this make me a happy mommy.
I’ve been adding the pumpkin to my baked goods, breakfast foods, smoothies and fall themed lattes. This is totally my favourite foodie time of year! So many opportunities to create tummy tasty foods using pumpkin!
This is my simple creamy Pumpkin Sauce recipe below. You can whip it up in 5 minutes! Store it in a Mason Jar to use later or add it straight to your pasta. You can make it ahead and keep it in your refrigerator which is handy if your in a hurry to make dinner on a weekday. Just heat it up in a deep frying pan or pot and just add your hot pasta right into it. Combine well and add any veggies you have on hand to it. Honestly I feel like these simple recipes are the best meals! Food doesn’t have to be complicated!
My Creamy Pumpkin Mac & Cheese Sauce:
– 1 cup raw cashews
– 1/2 cup warm water
– 1/2 cup dairy free milk of choice. I like Flax or Oat milk.
– 1/4 tsp turmeric
– 1 tsp paprika
– freshly ground pepper to taste
– 2 – 3 cloves of garlic
– 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
– 1 tbsp miso paste
You can add any other spices of yoour choice as well. I simetimes add a bit of Mrs Dash and it tastes great with that additional seasoning.
Add a splash of extra milk if you think it needs it. I prefer my sauce on the thicker side.
That’s it! Simple & delicious.
