This Vegetarian Cauliflower Sauce is perfect on pasta, steamed broccoli, or as a dipping sauce for chips and veggies! Thanks to the addition of Frontier Co-op Nutritional Yeast, it has a cheesy taste to it as well. Because I’m lactose intolerant, and I #CookWithPurpose, I used lactose-free milk. However, if your stomach can handle it, you could use real milk, or even add cheese!
So why nutritional yeast? Back when I lived in Charlotte, I used to go to all these raw vegan cooking classes. (Yeah, I was THAT kind of hipster.) Well one thing that always came up was nutritional yeast in recipes because it added a savory, cheesy flavor to recipes. So when Frontier Co-op sent me a gang of seasonings and spices to #SpiceUpSummer, and told me to highlight one, I knew exactly what I was going to choose!
The great thing about this sauce, is that it’s versatile. Whether you’re eating it with pasta, or dipping veggies in it you are going to love the flavor combinations. I also love that you can add, or take away, ingredients and its still delicious. If you’re vegan, sub the lactose-free milk for dairy-free milk! If you’re not lactose intolerant, for the love of all things cheesy add some parmesan! You can still throw in some Nutritional Yeast for flavor. I even threw in a bit of butter to make it creamy.
Because I’m trying to step up my Youtube game, I made a video of this recipe! I would love for y’all to share it or give me any feedback you have! (I know it’s a little dark. I’m still getting used to these manual settings, so bare with me.) And as always, if you have any questions, leave them in the comments below!
