Hi! Wing It Vegan is currently on its annual hiatus. It might take me a while to reply to comments, messages, emails, love letters, hate mail, and all that good stuff. I had to turn on that hateful word-verification thingie for comments due to too much spam - it is rather annoying, sorry about that! Thanks for stopping by!

Cheesy Cauliflower Sauce

Can you hand me the... the um... vegetable... the white broccoli? That's what I asked Mr. Wing-It a few months ago when I couldn't remember the word "cauliflower". Mr.Wing-It knew exactly what I meant though! For today's edition of my Lazy MoFo, I bring you this deliciously vibrant Cheesy Cauliflower Sauce, courtesy of Susan at FatFree Vegan Kitchen. Behold...

Cheesy Cauliflower Sauce

Bam!! Isn't it gorgeous? It is delicious and very very light. I actually used frozen cauliflower instead of fresh and it worked out just fine. It has plenty of nutritional yeast so it really is very cheesy, and the lemon juice gives it a nice tanginess that makes the sauce extra flavorful. A little bit of turmeric gives it that lovely yellow color. Mine had a little salt instead of miso to keep it soy free. I had to add a little extra water to the finished sauce because it was more scoopable than pourable, but scoopable would have been nice too. So far I've only had it on broccoli, but I can't wait to pour it on just about everything but dessert. Thank you for sharing this perfect recipe, Susan!

Today's daily dose of cute is this intimidating little Yellow-Bellied Marmot that we met in Yellowstone National Park. Say hello... from a safe distance... and try not to make eye contact...

  1. Wow, this looks so delicious! We go through a lot of broccoli in this house and I think this is a great way to mix it up a little bit. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Yum! Cauliflower is one of the most versatile vegtables! It can become everything from cheese sauce and bread crumbs to mashed potatoes! I wonder how many layers of cauliflower we could use in one dish?!

    1. I know! Someone should totally create an all-cauliflower dish with lots of layers. I'd definitely eat that! :D

  3. Ooo yeah, cheesy cauliflower sauce is the best, I think. Last time I tried to make mac-and-cheese with it, and serve it to little Miss E, she said no thanks. I was crushed. Guess I'll just have to eat it all myself.

    1. Aw, Miss E, no! Maybe when her young little tastebuds get a little older she will love it too.

  4. I love using cauliflower in dips and sauces and I've actually made a similar cauliflower cheese which I ate over....steamed cauliflower. I guess you could say I like it. ;)

    1. I would pass it over but it's all gone! And I'm out of nutritional yeast! Oh, the hardships!

  7. I've been meaning to try that sauce since Susan first posted it, thanks for the reminder! I love that you served cruciferous vegetables on cruciferous vegetables.

    1. You're welcome, I hope you love it too! Does this mean that my cruciferous vegetables cancelled each other out? I should have thrown some brussels sprouts on the side just to be sure :D
