1/2 cup Cashews (soaked, drained and rinsed)
1/4 Lemon (juiced)
3/4 tsp Nutritional Yeast

Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook the ground beef for about 5 minutes and drain any excess liquid. Season with half the salt and add the tomato sauce. Let simmer for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, add the soaked cashews, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, water and remaining salt to a blender. Blend until creamy.
Slice your zucchini length-wise using a peeler. Divide onto plates and top with the tomato sauce and cashew mixture. Garnish with nutritional yeast (optional). Enjoy!
