Vegan Cheese Sauce- 21 Day Fix Approved


Vegan Cheese Sauce-  21 Day Fix Approved


So after the doing the Ultimate Reset I really want to incorporate more vegan type recipes into my meal plan.  This "cheese" sauce is pretty delish and even my kids eat it over their broccoli! Give it a try and let me know what you think!




Ingredients
1-1/2 cups of cashews (soaked overnight)
1 TSP nutritional yeast
¼ tsp tamari sauce
1 TBSP olive oil
1 clove of garlic
1/2 medium white onion, diced
1/2 roasted red pepper, diced
Juice of half a lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Vegetable stock to get desired consistency 

Directions

-Ahead of time roast the red pepper by cutting the it into quarters. Remove the seeds and the membranes. Roast the peppers until the skin blisters and turns black. Remove from oven and place in a plastic bag until cool. The skins should peel away off of the peppers easily when cooled.
I like to roast several and freeze them so I have some ready to thaw for other recipes I make.
-In a small skillet, saute the diced onion in the olive oil until almost clear.
-Place all ingredients in a blender, except the vegetable stock and blend on high until smooth.
-Drizzle in the stock until desired consistency of your sauce is reached.
-Serve over freshly cooked pasta, steamed broccoli or rice!

For a Southwestern spin, add in a tsp of the Smokey Southwestern Seasoning .  Delish for Nachos!

*If you are following the 21 Day fix, portion this sauce out in your blue.
