This recipe is a complete experiment and it turned out delicious. This is my healthy version of Mac n Cheese or Alfredo sauce.
1 head of cauliflower, cut into small florets
2 chopped carrots
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp garlic granules
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp dried sage (or fresh)
3 tbp of nutritional yeast
1/2 cup of grated vegan pizza cheese
1 cup soy milk
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
Salt to taste
500 gms gnocchi
Cook the carrots and cauliflower and then blend it with the soy milk to get a creamy thick mixture. Set aside!
In a hot pan, add the oil and fry the onions. Add the garlic granules and mustard. Stir well and add just a little dash of water to stop it from sticking. Now add the cauliflower mixture, cheese, sage and nutritional yeast.
Let it cook for a couple of minutes and set it aside.
In a separate saucepan, cook the gnocchi as per instructions.
Once cooked, drain and stir it in the cauliflower sauce.
Tip: Sprinkle some chilli flakes or throw in some butternut squash. Instead of gnocchi add macaroni or any other pasta of your choice.
If you thin out the sauce with some plant based milk, you could have it like soup.
