Vegan Cheese Sauce

I’ve often eaten vegan meals that were more delicious than anything else I’ve ever eaten.  Vegan cheese sauce is an art that I haven’t perfected, and yet when it works, my oh my it’s good!

I use fresh garlic and fresh onion in this recipe, because I don’t keep garlic powder or onion powder in my cupboard. I’ve never liked them as ingredients, always preferring the real thing.  Obviously, they are way easier to use, so if you have them, go ahead and use them, but you’ll need much small quantities.

The Dijon mustard is important for flavour, but you can also use dry mustard powder – again, you’d have to use less.

Melt together over low heat:

  • 1 Tbsp margarine
  • 1 Tbsp all purpose flour

Then gradually mix in:

  • 3/4 cup soy milk
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup good tasting yeast
  • 1 small clove of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp finely minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Do you have a favorite vegan cheese recipe or secrets to share?

Life is an amazing journey.

    Sounds interesting. I’d certainly try it, but I don’t think it would ever replace real cheese sauce for me. I love cheese.

      Hi Arlee, yes. It has never replaced real cheese sauce for me, either – yet – sometimes I really want to stay away from dairy as it can cause congestion – at those times, this cheese sauce is a winner. Believe it or not, it does make a decent mac ‘n cheese!

  • Turnip Pie the Spanish-Way (not)
    I was invited to a multi-national potluck supper, and was brain dead with what to make.  When that happens, I usually fall back on Spanish Tortilla de Patates, but I had yellow turnips in my fridge – not potatoes.  I’ve…Read more ›
  • Leeks ‘N’ Lentils
      Oh Yeah! The simplicity of this dish allows the flavours of the leeks and shiitake mushrooms to blend beautifully. It needs nothing more than salt and freshly ground pepper.  I thought about adding tumeric or fresh herbs, but loved…Read more ›

    Just like you, I used to cringe at the idea of  meal replacement shakes.   If anyone suggested them to me, I’d wrinkle my nose in disgust and say: “I only eat whole foods.” I only ate whole foods till I…Read more ›
