there is one thing i insist on covering in cheezy goodness: broccoli! i will eat it plain, but i'll bitch about it. sue me. i wanted to make a cheese sauce on my own without any assistance from a vegan cookbook. so i took what i knew from the color wheel. for those of you with no artistic ability, you want to mix ingredients of varying colors to get a particular color. this was truly an experiment. a magnificently tasty experiment.
readers, i give you fo' sheezy my cheezy sauce dedicated to mollyjade at the ppk. she requested a kugel, but i ran out of time. i know she likes broccoli and i hope she likes fake cheese. scratch n' sniff baby, scratch n' sniff....
- 3/4 c roasted butternut squash-bright orange
- 2T veganaise-white
- 1/3 c. nutritional yeast-yellow
- 1 t samba oelek-deep red
- 1/2 avocado-bright green
- 1/4 t mustard-deep yellow
- splash of lemon juice
- 1T miso-golden color
- 1/4 salt
- 1/8 plain non dairy vegan creamer-white
i blended everything together and heated it on low heat. i spooned it over steamed broccoli and it was divine. this makes a very thick cheez sauce, so you may want to add more liquid ingredients to thin things out if you feel so inclined.
thanks for reading and happy eating!
