It’s easy being vegan ’cause you can make this great “cheese” sauce in a jiff.
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Cheese Sauce*
Makes about 1-1/2 cups
3/4 cup water
6 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp chopped onions
2 tbsp sweet white miso
1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt
Place all ingredients in a blender and process until creamy and smooth.
Use this sauce on steamed veggies and pasta dishes — or any dish you want to top with a creamy cheesy sauce. The recipe book serves up several versions of this sauce including a lower fat variation.
The Saucy Vegetarian offers over 150 no-cook (Yes, no-cook!), quick and healthy sauces and dressings. Sauces were a weak point for me in the kitchen until I purchased this book. It includes a wealth of knowledge on dressing and sauce techniques, including how to create your own for those creative souls. This was a much needed addition to my cookbook library. It may not be the newest cookbook on the market but it’s definitely one to check out. You can buy it online or at your local bookstore.
