I Love You, Vegan Yum Yum!

I assume most vegan foodies have "to-make wish lists" a mile long. To give you an idea of how ridiculously back-logged I am, I just now made Vegan Yum Yum's Tomato Basil Cream Pasta ... though Lauren posted it in August of 2008!

I'm insane for waiting so long. This dish came together in less than 20 minutes and it's crazy, crazy good. The best part? The recipe is conveniently available on Vegan Yum Yum's FREE iPhone app! But if you don't have an iPhone, the whole thing (with gorgeous step-by-step pictures) is on Vegan Yum Yum's blog.

The sauce gets its creaminess from blended raw cashews (no soymilk!) and a large, fresh ripe summer tomato. If you haven't tried this yet, make it while the tomatoes are still tasty! There are only a few weeks of tomato time left in the South and I'd imagine it's the same in other areas as well. Ah, how I'll miss juicy summer tomatoes...
