Sauce and toppings of choice, I used 1/2 pesto, 1/2 tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and diced olives.

-Preheat oven to 425F and cover baking sheet with parchment paper.

-Strain and rinse quinoa, then add to blender with the 1/2 cup water, baking powder, onion and garlic powder. Blend until smooth.

-Spread on baking sheet, careful not to make too thin.

-Bake for 25 mins, turning pan half way through.

-While baking, make your cashew “cheese” by blending all ingredients and pour in pot. Cook on medium for 4 minutes. Whisk continuously until thick and stringy.
