Vegan Cheese Sauce
What You'll Need
½ cup uncooked white quinoa
1 cup sweet potato (peeled & grated)
2¼ cup water
½ cup canned corn
2½ Tbsp corn starch or ground flax seeds
1 tsp hot sauce (optional)
1½ Tbsp chipotle mustard (or flavor of choice)
How to Make It
1 Put quinoa and sweet potato into pot with 1¼ cups water. Bring to boil, cover, let simmer for 20 minutes (until the water is gone). Turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes (still covered). Uncover, let cool to room temperature.
2 Add quinoa & sweet potato mixture to blender or food processor. Pulse the mixture a few times.
3 Add rest of the ingredients, with the water (¾ to 1 cup) added in between pulse blends, gradually increasing processing until a smooth pancake-like batter is achieved.
4 Makes 3 cups of sauce.
Using frozen corn is not advised.
