- 3 tbsp vegan butter, divided

- 1 tsp Organic Herbs de Provence

- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

- Add the remaining 2 tbsp of vegan butter to the pan and melt again over medium high heat. Add the remaining crushed carlin cloves and cook for 1 minute or just until fragrant. Add the herbes de provence, cashew milk and nutritional yeast whisking to incorporate. Let the mixture simmer until thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
