I served this tasty sauce over cauliflower. This time I used a medium tofu as that was what I had on hand. The sauce ended up being a bit grainy so I think I'll try a soft silken tofu next time. I have a lot left over so I'll be trying it with the suggested rice, too. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook potato, carrot, garlic, and onion in the 1 cup of water till vegetables are very soft, about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Pour into blender, along with tofu, salt and brewers yeast, and puree.
  3. Add more broth or water if necessary.
  4. The ending consistency should be very thick, like a cheese sauce.
  5. If you like a bit of a "kick" to the sauce, like what using sharp cheddar would give, add some hot sauce.
  6. You'll be tempted to use more than 1 cup of water, but don't until the final pureeing stage, since you don't want to end up making this too thin.
  7. You can always add more water/broth/white wine at the end; however, this is not a sauce you can "cook down".
  8. Serve over cooked rice, mixed with pasta, and vegetables, etc.
