Oh She Glows, All-Purpose Vegan Cheese Sauce

  • Why do I like it?

One of the things that plant based eaters miss most is cheese! We are excited about a recipe when we find one that satisfies with flavor and texture. I have made both of the above recipes before, liked both for their flavor and texture. I was making this for someone who didn’t like turmeric so I decided to take elements from both recipes and combine them. See the notes on the tweaks I made below.

The combo sauce is creamy and substantial yet light at the same time.  The recipe makes enough for leftovers and lasts for up to a week in the fridge.  The ingredients are basic, yet the sauce has a crave worthy flavor.  

  • Any recipe notes or tweaks?

I increased the amount of salt.  I swapped cauliflower for the potato. I added lemon and vinegar to the finished sauce.  It added a nice tanginess which I really loved.
