Happy New Year!
The time has come, plant-pushing friends. We’re kicking off January in wicked style with a recipe video everyday. Inspiration, encouragement, and plenty of drool-worthy recipes to come. Whether you’re an ole’ pro, just dipping your toes in the veggie kitchen, or veg-curious and want to bring more veg center plate. We’ve got you covered!
We’re starting off with a base sauce that we’ll need moving forward and you’re gonna love it!
It’s all about nailing the textures, flavors and bringing that familiar, comfort food feeling filled with memories and safety back to our plate. For us that’s a warming Queso, fondue or creamy, melty, sticky cheese sauce for fries, pizza, jacket potatoes and Mac & Cheese. This is definitely on the Wicked side of things, however, it is healthier than any dairy product out there and it can be done with no-oil if you’re watching calories so keep that in mind.
Over the years we’ve worked with several chefs and recipes to create a mock cream sauces and this one is a great base and staple to make often. We call it the Wicked Awesome Sauce, cause it just that, awesome! If you search our site you’ll find a couple versions of ‘cheeze’ sauces that are similiar, some more healthy than others, all of them delicious and can be switched out for this one in any recipe.
Lets dig in.
This Wicked Awesome Sauce is creamy, dreamy, and on point. You can call it cheese sauce or you can call it Gary if you think that’s a better fit. We just love that ‘Gary’ reference. Remember the recipe is a guide, it’s not gospel. Make it a couple times, get used to it and then play around with it. Try switching the cauliflower out with Butternut squash, sweet or regular potato. The miso for Tahini or the PepperJack V-cheese for your favorite V-cheese that you can get near you.
Whatever you call it, it’s the perfect creamy sauce for a silky, smooth, lush mac and cheeze, to drizzle over nachos, top a sandwich, spread over pizza or use as a decadent dip. For more wicked healthy ideas on how to use this cheese, check these dishes out!
