Ingredients
  • 1 12-oz. box pasta (I used gluten-free brown rice pasta)
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 large collard greens, chopped
  • 1 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
  • some pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box.
  2. Combine the cashews (Note: They MUST be raw cashews. You can pick these up in bulk or at Trader Joe's for $6 a bag—seems like a lot, but they go a long way and one batch of this cheese makes a LOT!), water, nutritional yeast, salt, and lemon juice in a food processor or blender. If it gets too thick, add a little water; if it's too watery, add a few more cashews.
  3. Add the cashew cheese, collards, and sundried tomatoes to the cooked pasta. Toss and sprinkle with black pepper.
