The best ‘cheese’ sauce

After much trial and error and tasting and grimacing and compiling and forgetting…


TaDah! It’s here. What I think is a pretty satisfying ‘cheese’ sauce.

Let me know what you think!


100g silken tofu (microwave for around 20 – 30 seconds to soften)
100ml unsweetened soya yogurt
100ml Oatley single cream*
¼ tub soya cream cheese (about 70g)*
¼ tub soya mature cheese spread (about 70g)*
3 tablespoons nutritional flakes
1tsp English mustard
1 large clove garlic
½ tsp turmeric
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

* all available in the Free From aisle of Tesco or at specialist healthfood stores.


Easy peasy! Blitz all of the ingredients in a liquidiser and Voila! Heat very gently on the hob for a few minutes then pour over your favourite pasta. Cheddar cheese? Who needs it!
