Low-fat Vegan Cheddar Cheese Sauce Recipe

What You'll Need


1 small head cauliflower (about 4 cups chopped), steamed

1 small red bell pepper, roasted and peeled/seeds removed.

½ cup unsweetened soy milk

¼ cup nutritional yeast

2 tsp mellow white miso (optional, if you’re minimizing your salt intake you can skip it)

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp brown mustard

⅛ tsp turmeric


How to Make It


1 Blend all ingredients until smooth.

2 Transfer to a sauce pan and whisk to eliminate the air that got caught in it from blending. Heat until warm. My cauliflower had not cooled off totally when I blended, but I did this step anyway, just to get rid of most of the air bubbles.

3 Serve over pasta, steamed vegetables, anything you like!
