Cheese Sauce (Vegan)

We here at Grumpy Panda love cheese, like we love cheese. For those times you feel like going full vegan we’ve got you covered. Thick, proper cheesy and amazingly low in fat this sauce is the best of both worlds.

Nutritional yeast is a relatively new ingredient depending on what food circles you run in. Basically its similar to brewers yeast only its inactive so healthier (yay science), it has a lovely cheesy slightly nutty flavour. Most health food shops carry it but you can find it on amazon as well.

  • 200g cauliflower cut in small florets
  • 200ml good veg stock
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp worchestershire sauce

In a small saucepan bring your stock to a boil and add the cauliflower, don’t worry if the stock doesn’t cover the vegetables. Let the pan simmer stirring occasionally until you can crush the cauliflower with a fork. Time to let the stock cauliflower cool, so put your feet up with a cuppa, you’re cooking vegan so you deserve it.

Chuck everything into a food processor or blender and puree to your desired texture. We’ve like it super smooth but if you like a little chunky funky that’s cool. Season to taste and you’re all set.

Use it as a dip for vegetable sticks, a thick pasta sauce for macaroni or spread it on your favourite veggie burger.
