Meatballs without the meat, and fiery buffalo sauce without the pool of butter—this is a satisfying plant-based alternative to a game-day classic that everyone is sure to declare a winner. Both the sauce and meatballs can be made up to two days in advance. If you’re serving people who like things spicy, go ahead and blend in even more of the hot sauce.
When soaked and then blended with water, raw cashews make a silky sauce that is neutral in flavor. You can leverage this to make all sorts of creamy vegan sauces, including buffalo, chocolate, and alfredo.
