Basic Cream Sauce

I made this the other night with steamed broccoli, mushrooms, and a sprouted grain pasta. It was delicious! Hope you enjoy it too.

This recipe came from I used a chicken flavored seasoning from the Food Co-op.

This cream sauce is a basic ingredient in so many foods such as gravies and wherever a cream sauce is needed. Easy to make and plant-based (vegan).


  • 2 1/2 c. water
  • 1/2 c. raw cashews
  • 2 Tbsp. Bill’s Best Chik Nish seasoning
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt or more to taste


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until it is very smooth.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a pot and cook on medium heat, stirring the sauce regularly so it doesn't burn.
  3. It should only take a few minutes, remove the sauce from the heat when it is thick and serve.
Cooking time:  Approximately 10 minutes
Yields: About 2 1/2
