See how seamlessly a protein, vitamin, veg-packed Vegan Cheese Sauce is born. I've tried many recipes and I tinkered with my own recipe endlessly, until this perfection was achieved.
You only need 12 minutes and a handful of standard ingredients to pull off the healthiest cheese sauce around. Please Enjoy!
What you need:
For the Cheese Sauce:
1 C Chopped Carrot
4-5 Cauliflower Florets
1/4 C Pumpkin Seeds*
1/2 C Non dairy milk
1 Tsp Salt
2 Tbl Tomato Paste or 3 Tbl Marinara Sauce
2 Tbl Nutritional Yeast
Optional for added flavor: 1 Tbl Miso Paste
For the Nachos:
1/2 Tsp Cumin
1/2 Tsp Chili powder
3/4 Tsp Salt
Optional: Cilantro, Corn, Jalapeno, Ole!
For the Macaroni:
Pasta Shells, or Macaroni
Optional: Garlic Roasted Broccoli
What you do:
Boil the Carrots, Cauliflower & Pumpkin Seeds for 10 minutes. In the meantime, if making nachos, set your onion to saute and Add the remaining Cheese Sauce ingredients to a blender.
Incorporate Boiled Carrots/Cauli/Seeds & Blend to Cheesy Perfection.
For the Nachos, Add black beans to the onion, Season with Salt/Cumin/Chili Powder
Assemble and Devour!
*For the Pumpkin Seeds: I used lightly salted store bought, but extra credit for unearthing them from your household pumpkin! Just make sure to bake them and add an extra 1/2 tsp salt to make up for the difference
