DAIRY FREE CHEESE SAUCE
Delicious + Dairy Free
🧀 I changed up my old recipe and added in some beans for some extra protein. This sauce is both great for dipping, or used in a pasta. 🍝 .
1. Soak 1/2c cashews in water for 3-4 hours - if you are allergic to cashews, or don’t have cashews - replace with sunflower seeds or 2 tbsp vegan butter like @miyokoscreamery .
2. In a blender, add:
-1c cooked white beans (like navy)
-1/2 cup soaked cashews or sunflower seeds
-1-2 tsp nutritional yeast
-1tsp garlic powder
-1tsp onion powder
-1/4 tsp turmeric
-1c water -1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
-1 tbsp organic miso + salt to taste .
Blend - and then transfer to a saucepan and heat over low/medium heat. .
👩🏻🍳 Now here is the all important question- do you like a gooey consistency or non gooey? If you want a gooey consistency, also add in 1tsp arrowroot or organic corn starch mixed with 2 tbsp water, and stir into the mixture whilst heating. You will see the consistency become more gooey as it heats up. .
