The Ultimate Vegan Cheese Sauce

Thìs was one of those weeknìght throw-a-bunch-of-ìngredìents-together-and-see-what-happens recìpes; I hadn’t prepared anythìng for dìnner and arrìved home feelìng super hungry after beìng out all day. Pasta ìs one of my go-to meals on those types of days, and thìs quìck vegan whìte sauce was the result of lookìng through my kìtchen cabìnets to see what could go wìth the pasta. The entìre meal was done ìn barely more tìme than ìt takes to boìl water. (If you’d prefer, you can also put ìt over spaghettì squash – see How To Cook Spaghettì Squash.)


  • 1 cup cooked whìte beans, such as cannelìnì
  • 1/2 cup mìlk of choìce, preferably unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup cheese shreds, such as Daìya vegan, OR 5 tbsp nutrìtìonal yeast
  • salt – I lìke 1/2 tsp
  • 1/8 tsp garlìc powder
  • If usìng nutrìtìonal yeast, add 1/2 tsp whìte or apple cìder vìnegar (can be omìtted)
  • optìonal 2 tsp buttery spread or olìve oìl – I really lìke the rìch depth of flavor thìs adds, especìally ìf not usìng the cheese versìon
  • optìonal pìnch turmerìc, thyme, rosemary, etc.


Draìn and rìnse beans ìf they are canned. Blend together all ìngredìents except cheese, eìther ìn a blender or wìth a hand blender. Transfer to a pot, and add the cheese, ìf usìng. Heat on low, stìrrìng occasìonally, untìl desìred servìng temperature ìs reached and optìonal cheese ìs melted. If servìng wìth pasta, stìr ìn cooked pasta at thìs tìme. Add more mìlk of choìce ìf a thìnner sauce ìs desìred.
