Ingredients
  • 1 head head of broccoli cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 head head of cauliflower cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 4 carrots sliced into 3/4 pieces
  • 1 large onion cubed
  • 1 15 oz. can white cannellini beans drained and rinsed (or 2 cups prepared from scratch)
  • 1/2 cup jarred roasted red peppers packed in water, drained (or homemade)
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 4 Tbl fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbl tahini
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 cups homemade vegetable broth or low-sodium brand, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray the bottom of a 9 x 12″ baking pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. Steam broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and onion in a large pot over boiling water or in a steamer basket until crisp-tender. Place into your prepared baking pan.
  3. Prepare the cheese sauce by placing the beans, roasted red peppers, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, tahini, mustard, spices, and 1/2 cup vegetable broth in a blender.
  4. Blend until very smooth adding a little vegetable broth to thin and make it easier to remove.
  5. Scrap the cheese sauce from the blender into a large pan over medium heat. Reuse your steaming pan if that works. Add the veggie broth.
  6. Mix carefully with a whisk until the sauce is smooth and liquid is incorporated together with the cheese sauce. Let heat through.
  7. Pour the sauce over the veggies and move them around a little to make sure the sauce covers them. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes or until heated through.
  8. Serve with your choice of grain.
