Amazing Vegan Cheese Sauce

Amazing Vegan Cheese Sauce-Blendtec
The taste and texture of this you-won't-believe-it’s-not-cheese sauce is incredible. It’s perfect for a vegan mac & cheese (and will fool the non-vegans who want to eat a bit healthier). It’s also delicious poured over vegetables. Plus, you probably already have these ingredients on hand!

    I make another plant based cheese sauce that has oatmeal,nutritional yeast, onion powder, lemon juice, corn starch, salt and water that are blended and cooked until thick and then I add Rotel tomatoes to that that I am in love with.

    I made a very similar version of this sauce (http://veganyumminess.com/c… for my vegan son. Mac and cheese used to be one of his favorite dishes, but nothing has come close until now. He’s also gluten free so homemade mac and cheese is a must. I skipped the soy sauce as he’s not fond of it—even gluten free version and mustard. I used a little onion instead of the powder. He loves the mac and cheese. It also freezes very well in individual portion containers.

    The olive oil really isn’t needed. And yes, more vegan recipes please!

    I love this vegan cheese. I served it over a whole cooked (microwaved) head of cauliflower. I added some mustard and sage to the sauce, which I think enhances "cheese" flavor.
