The MOST Epic Vegan Cheese Sauce

March 2, 2017

We went out for dinner the other week and my husband ordered the vegan burger and it came with an amazing vegan “cheese” sauce so I went on the quest to find a recipe and to try it out myself.  So I got inspiration from this recipe but used the ingredients I had and modified it for myself and used it for our own burgers this past weekend and then as a sauce over gnocchi where I added baby spinach and onion as well.  It is a super versatile little sauce and so easy to make but just so TASTY too!

If you need to jazz up a vegan burger, add to sauce to pasta, make a vegan lasagne, do a wheat and dairy free sauce for veggies or any recipe normally using a “cheese” sauce – then this recipe is for you!As you can see from the picture here I used it in more burgers AND over leftover roast veggies – like I said, a pretty versatile sauce.  Do remember though, it is made from carbs – so don’t overdo them in other parts of your meal.

Let me know if you make it by tagging me on instagram @julie_the_dietitian so I may have a look at your creation.

This sauce is vegan friendly, dairy free, wheat & gluten free and 100% delicious!

An unusual combination of ingredients to produce a very versatile vegan cheese sauce
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 cup peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup (125ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons mustard (I used hot English)
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon soya sauce (if GF - use tamari)
  1. Boil the carrot and potatoes in water till soft.
  2. Then using a food processor or hand held mixer blend the other ingredients with the carrot and potato to make a smooth "cheesy" sauce. If it needs thinning out a little, add more almond milk.
GF = gluten free
Also, if you have a nut allergy you can use any other dairy free milk alternative (although this has not been tested)
