Vodka Cream Sauce [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
Confessions of a vegan chef: One night, I was trying to throw together a quick, nutritious dinner for my kids and—gasp!—my vegetable drawer was empty. I did, however, discover a stash of cashew cream in the freezer. Since I always have pasta and marinara sauce on hand, this yummy, super-easy dish was born.

Vodka Cream Sauce [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan

Serves

4

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup raw cashews
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 (24-ounce) jar fat-free marinara or pasta sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vodka

Preparation

  1. In a blender or food processor, purée cashews and water until smooth.
  2. Stir cashew cream into pasta sauce in pot over medium heat.
  3. Add vodka and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Serve over whole-grain or gluten-free pasta, spaghetti squash, rice, polenta, steamed spinach, or other “bottom” of choice.

Notes

I didn’t use much vodka in my kids’ version, and I made sure to render it (boil it off) fully. Otherwise, the evening would have been a bit, well, livelier.

Don\'t want to talk this recipe down - in fact it sounds delicious but there is correction needed in the ingredients list.
Marinara sauce is not vegan. It\'s Seafood Sauce, Marinara = ital. Mare = Ocean.
It is Seafood in a light tomato sauce, garlic and/or onions, herbs.
What you are referring to is called \'Napolitana\' sauce, the traditional tomato pasta sauce.
Kind regards

Vodka is inherently odorless and tasteless, so why would you use it in a recipe?

it is weird, but it definitely changes the recipe - it is NOT the same without the vodka!
