I am in a lot of Facebook groups that pertain to food allergies and special diets like paleo. Last week, in a dairy free group, I had a lot of people express an interest in my dairy free vegan cheese sauce.

Due to my limited diet from food allergies, I have made this for a few years now. Growing up, my mum always made this with regular cheese and milk and I just adapted the recipe to something that I can have. I won’t lie, it tastes amazing when made with extra old cheese, but that isn’t an option for me anymore.

I use this sauce for a number of dishes. It is super easy to make and the slightest tweak gives you a new flavor. You can alter it with different vegan cheeses or spices. My favorite is use some dill and garlic or just some chili peppers.

I add it on top of my zoodles to get a fettuccine dish or gluten free and regular pasta work well. It works great on top of baked potatoes with bacon, chives and grated vegan cheese. I use it as a soup base for cream of mushroom, celery or tomato soups. Pour it on top of steamed veggies or I dice cauliflower and stir in the sauce to make a paleo mac and cheese.

This is the one I am going to cover today as it was requested a lot. I will go into the other alterations in another post. Enjoy and let me know what you think of it!
