This looks scrummy. Love mushrooms too. I find it so strange how I like creamy sauces now I'm vegan when I didn't previously...my favourites are nut based, but with the richness of the whole nuts in this dish I imagine the lighter sauce works well. Alongside a nice lemony green veg this would suit me down to a t.

Looks good Andrea. Is the yeast neccesary? I still haven't got round to buying any.

@Emma - thanks so much for commenting! I do love nut-based sauces too. I used to wonder how I could create creamy sauces again before being vegan, but they're really easy (and so much healthier!). Yes I agree - some green veg here as a side works well. Wilted spinach with a dash olive oil for me :)

@Jackie - it's the yeast flakes which add a bit of depth and cheesiness to the sauce. You could of course make it without. In which case, I'd say go for a more flavoursome non-dairy milk, like coconut as I mention, or maybe unsweetened almond milk. Also - you could try using a tablespoon or so of soy sauce as well (or if you have yellow miso paste, that would work in place of yeast flakes).

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
