Caramelize aromatics and squash

Add dried spices, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper and continue to sauté for another 1-2 minutes, until spices are aromatic.

Sauté spices

Bring to a slow simmer, cover the skillet, and allow to simmer until broth is reduced slightly, squash is fall-apart tender, and cashews are pale and plump.
