Once upon a time I was a cheese addict struggling to go fully vegan. Then I realized the endless possibilities to making plant based cheeses and here I am over 5 years vegan.
This was a pretty simple cheese sauce and oh so delicious. I would love feedback if anyone makes a recipe I post.
1 cup cashews soaked
1 cup cauliflower florets
1/2 cup of the cooking water saved from preparing the cauliflower
1/3 white onion diced
4 -5 cloves of garlic
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Sea salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp nutritional yeast ( or I use curry powder in place of that about 2 tsp )
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
Boil the cauliflower. While the cauliflower is cooking sauté the onion and garlic. Soak the cashews ( you can do this over night) once the cauliflower is cooked I saved the cooking water to blend the sauce. Add all ingredients to high speed blender and blend well to combine. Serve with pasta of choice. I used gluten free.
