Before I became vegan, I was a vegetarian for a long time because I could not see life without cheese. Now I know that cheese is full of fat, hormones, pesticides and pus and is cruel to mama cows, so I say no way, dairy cheese. The holy grail has been to find a vegan, whole food recipe that I like as well, or at least something that will taste great on veggies and potatoes. I have found it! I combined a bunch of plant-based cheese recipes, dumped the ones with oil or just with no flavor, and came up with what I think is a really yummy cheese sauce. Try it and see what you think!
2 c red bell pepper (raw or roasted. Try both ways–they taste a little different)
1 small or half a large SWEET onion
1 container Mori Nu Lite tofu
1 c rolled oats
2-3 T lemon juice
1 T miso paste
2 cloves garlic (I used 2 t granulated garlic)
1 T mild chili powder
1/2 c nutritional yeast
Put all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy on Mexican food, vegetables, or potatoes and enjoy your cheese again!
My name is Heather and I'm from Portland, Oregon. I am eating a plant-based, whole foods, unprocessed diet, with no sugar, oil, or salt, to take off weight and regain my life. I once weighed over 436 lbs and have released over 288 lbs eating this way and walking for exercise. I call my channel The Butterfly Effect because I believe that all the small choices you make, over time, add up and have a huge effect on your life. I wanted to show people like me who have 100, 150, 200 or more pounds to take off that it can be done and we can do it together. I am far from perfect and have struggled with compulsive eating and been overweight for all of my life, but there is hope for me and there is hope for you too. What can you do, today, to bring you closer to your goals tomorrow? Please consider giving my videos a thumbs up, commenting and subscribing. I would be incredibly grateful for your support on this journey!
