This is a very tasty dish that will allow you to be out of the kitchen sooner than other things. Add a crusty bread, a great salad and a light dessert and you've got a complete meal to enjoy!

1/2 cup raw cashews (rinsed well)
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 1/2 cups soy milk (plain)
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. onion powder (2 tsp. if you love onions)

1 medium pkg. of broccoli, steamed (no longer than 3 minutes)
Steam vegetables and set aside.
Cook pasta according to pkg. instructions.
Dissolve the cornstarch in the soy milk, making sure you don't have any lumps. In the blender, process the cashews with a little bit of water, till smooth. Scrape into a bowl. Mix in the olive oil, the coconut milk and the other seasonings. Blend well. Pour into a saucepan and cook the cream until thick and bubbling, but not too thick.
