Recipe: Cheesy Broccoli

This dairy free, cholesterol-free vegan cheese sauce is super creamy and tasty. In this recipe, you pour it over steamed broccoli and carrot, but you can also use it on steamed cubed potatoes or green beans. Or you can go wild and pour it over all of the above!
Fewer calories, lower fat and cruelty free. (Yes, dairy is the cruelest industry of them all.  Don't believe me? Check this out.)

I found this recipe in the book "30 minute vegan" which I can highly recommend. I have found lots of doable recipes this cookbook, a few of which I will be featuring on this blog in the near future.

What you will need:
1 large bunch of broccoli
1 large carrot

For the Vegan Cheese Sauce:
three quarters of a cup of nutritional yeast
quarter tsp sea salt
2 cups soy milk ( I use Bonsoy as it is the creamiest and does not have a sweet taste to it like some others.)
1 garlic clove or  half tsp garlic powder (optional)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp flour (I use gluten free)
quarter tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp mustard powder

Steam broccoli and carrots.
For the sauce, blend all the ingredients in a blender or by hand using a whisk.
Transfer the mixture to a saute pan and heat over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
Drizzle over steamed vegetables and serve.

You can't get easier than that!
