This vegan Cajun pasta is coated in a creamy cashew-based sauce and topped with scallions, juicy tomatoes, and spicy shiitake mushrooms.
*Place cashews in a bowl and cover with water by a few inches. Soak for at least 6 hours or up to overnight. For a faster option, bring a pot of water to a boil, remove from heat and add the cashews. Soak for at least 30 minutes.
**To make your own cajun seasoning, combine 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, 1/2 teaspoon thyme, 1/2 teaspoon paprika (or smoked paprika) and a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional) in a small bowl and stir to mix.
