I make this to go with the Lentil and Wild Rice loaf for Thanksgiving. It goes wonderfully on mashed potatoes, yorkshire puddings, vegetables and just about anything else. The cashew and onion flavors mix beautifully together when you blend it at the end. The water amounts are estimates, but I have added descriptions of what it should look like. Also, definitely taste as you go along and add whatever suits your taste and complements the rest of your meal. This last time, I added about 1/3 c. white wine in addition to about 1 T of soy and threw in some (1 tsp fresh?) rosemary and it was amazing. Sometimes I add a whole lot of additional soy sauce and that is great too. It makes quite a bit, so you could cut in half. I freeze the left overs in small containers to use later.
