This cashew butternut sauce recipe is creamy, versatile, rich, and easy to make. Perfect for topping pasta, veggies, meat, or anything!


  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 1 1/2 cups broth, plus more as necessary
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed butternut squash, cooked
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Place cashews in a bowl of water (they should be completely submerged). Cover the bowl and allow cashews to soak at room temperature for 2-3 hours (not overnight). If your butternut squash isn't already cooked, you could use part of this time to cook it.
  2. Drain cashews and place in a high speed blender with broth, butternut squash, garlic, salt, and pepper. Blend until completely smooth.
  3. To serve warm, heat sauce in a small saucepan or skillet.


*Add more broth (or water) as necessary to achieve desired consistency.
