Ingredients
  • 1 head cauliflower roughly chopped
  • 2 cup(s) vegetable broth
  • 2 cup(s) plant-based milk (such as soy or almond)
  • 3 clove(s) garlic peeled
  • 1/4 cup(s) nutritional yeast
  • 2 teaspoon(s) white miso paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt (or to taste)
Instructions
  • Add the cauliflower, vegetable broth, non-dairy milk, and garlic to a big pot, and bring to a simmer. Cook for about 10 minutes, until the cauliflower is very soft and falls apart when pierced with a fork.
  • Now blend up the cauliflower mixture. You can use an emersion blender and blend everything together directly in the pot, or you can use a standing blender and blend the cauliflower and cooking liquid in batches, being careful not to fill the blender too high so the hot liquid doesn't explode out the top. Add the nutritional yeast, white miso paste, and salt and blend to combine.
  • If you find your sauce is too thin, return the sauce to the pan and cook it down a bit more stirring often so it doesn't burn. If it is too thick, add a bit more vegetable broth or water.
  • The ways to use this sauce are endless. Toss with pasta, mix into a casserole, top on pizza, make creamy scalloped potatoes, drizzle over baked potatoes, use in lasagna, you name it!
Notes
Soy-Free: To keep this recipe soy-free, swap out the miso for chickpea miso! Also, use an almond milk or oat milk instead of a soy milk.
