Creamy Cauliflower Cheese Sauce Pasta

Creamy Cauliflower Cheese Sauce Pasta

Ain’t nobody need cheese to make cheese sauce!

This vegan cauliflower sauce is BEYOND DELISH. I swear, you could fool even a cheese lover with it!

It’s smooth, thick, creamy, nutty, tastes just like cheese but contains zero dairy & is full of fibre, healthy fats & plant protein! You want & need it in your life STAT. And if you thought you could never get your kids away from KD, think again!

INGREDIENTS (for 2 portions):

  • 1 & 1/3 cup dry gluten-free plant-based pasta of choice (I used Tolerant Foods veggie legume pasta), boiled according to package
  • 2 cups steamed cauliflower
  • 1.5 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup water (& more if needed to thin out) OR unsweetened almond milk
  • Juice from one lemon
  • 1 tbsp. hemp hearts
  • 3 tbsp. raw organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. Dijon
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Add-ins of choice: I used cherry tomatoes & mache greens

HOW?:

  • Boil pasta according to package directions.
  • Steam the cauliflower by placing it in a skillet covered in water. Bring to a boil & cover to steam for about 5 minutes. This helps make it easier to digest.
  • Add all the sauce ingredients to the blender & blend be until combined. Add more water/milk if you want to thin it out.
