Broccoli and Vegan Cheese Sauce

Broccoli and cheese sauce is one of my favourite ways to get in my veggies! This creamy and cheesy-tasting sauce is a great vegan alternative to the traditional dairy cheese sauce! 


3-4 cups broccoli florets
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
1/4 cup plain almond or soy milk
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/8 tsp. ground mustard powder
1/8 tsp. pepper

This is nutritional yeast! It is what gives the sauce its cheesy flavour. You can find it in most grocery stores in the natural food section, bulk bins, or in health food stores.


Steam or roast the broccoli florets and set aside. In a small microwave-safe bowl, or in a small saucepan, combine the nutritional yeast, almond/soy milk, paprika, mustard powder, and white pepper, stirring until well combined. Heat in the microwave for 60-90 seconds or over low heat on the stovetop. Pour over the prepared broccoli and serve. For a spicy cheese sauce you could also add in 1/4-1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper for a little kick of heat.
