This recipe is for those that cannot do dairy, yet miss the cheesy goodness. I promise this is a life saver in the cheese department. It is very easy to make too. I made this “cheese sauce to go in a Southwestern Bean and Rice Casserole, which I will share the recipe in an upcoming post.
- 4 tbsp vegan butter
- 1/3 c GF Flour blend
- 3 c almond milk
- 1/2 c nutritional yeast flakes
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp yellow mustard, dried
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp turmeric, ground
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
In a large pan melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and cook butter/flour mixture until a paste forms, stirring continuously.
Add milk, nutritional yeast flakes, tomato paste, salt, mustard and onion powder.
Bring to a boil, whisking frequently. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until sauce has thickened.
Add lemon juice and stir.
This sauce can be used for so many different dishes.
