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!

    Meal planning is my weakness. I’m proud that I planned this meal far enough in advance to take the home made baked beans out of the freezer to defrost. Did that this morning.  Wanted them to add to yesterday’s left-overs:…Read more ›
