Vegan Cheese Sauce

Written by Kajsa IngelssonOctober 15, 2019

I love cheese and I love sauce. So when I found this recipe on Eat Healthy Eat Happy I knew I had to share it with you guys. Did you know that swedes eat a lot of potatoes. Really. I had so much of them growing up so I sort of swore off the little bastards around the age of 18. But much to my surprise, they made their way back to my heart and it’s all thanks to this recipe!

Vegan Cheese Sauce

  • 2 cups (5 dl) peeled, cubed potato
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • Water for boiling
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (1 dl) unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked or regular paprika
  • 4 teaspoons mustard (Dijon or brown work well)
  • 1 teaspoon lower sodium soy sauce or tamari

Make it as easy as 1-2-3:

  • Combine the potato and carrot in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until fork-tender. Drain and transfer to a food processor or power blender.
  • Add all the other ingredients to the food processor and process for about two minutes, or until totally smooth.
  • Serve over veggies, potatoes, rice or pasta for a healthy meatless meal!
