This Cauliflower No Cheese Sauce is a great cheese substitute! It is ready in a flash and can be used over potatoes, to top steamed vegetables, or over macaroni.
If you’re looking for a quick, easy meal, this one does the trick. If you’re really in a hurry, microwave your potatoes to get them started.
To start, bring your vegetable broth to a boil. Add in your cauliflower florets and seasonings. Allow this to simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until fork tender. Once done, allow broth and cauliflower to cool.
You'll add this to a blender with non-dairy milk, nutritional yeast, cornstarch, lemon juice and salt and pepper (to taste). Blend until you have a smooth, creamy sauce. Add back to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn to simmer for about three minutes so the cornstarch can thicken the sauce.

For your potatoes and depending on how many, microwave so they are tender-crisp. For 1 potato, I'd say about 3-5 minutes. Check with your fork. Then, finish them off in a 400 degree onion to create a crisp out shell. About another 15 minutes.
Steam a little broccoli or saute a carton of sliced mushrooms in water (yes, it really works). Top your spuds with the broccoli and/or sauteed mushrooms. Then, your No Cheese Sauce and dinner is ready!
