Baked Potato with “Cheesey” Sauce

OK start boiling some water in a double boiler. You can bake your potatoes a day early if you like. I did mine in the morning and ate it that night. I’m bad at baking potatoes so maybe you should google it if you don’t already know how. I had it in at 375° for an hour and it still was not done!


Here is what you’ll need for the sauce: 

1 head cauliflower

1/3 c vegan butter

1/3 c ap flour

2.5c  unsweetened non dairy milk (I use almond)

1/4 c lemon juice

2/3 c nutritional yeast

1 T miso paste

2 t mustard

3-4 cloves of garlic finely chopped

1/2 t salt

1/2 t pepper

* I didn’t know what miso paste was before I was vegan so if you don’t know if comes in a tub like this. There is brown, red, and yellow. i’m not sure of the difference. This along with nutritional yeast my be hard to find but they have miso and nutritional yeast at Whole Foods and Sprouts for sure. 


What to do:

Start by chopping your cauliflower into fairly small pieces and then steam it in a double boiler.


For the Sauce:

In a hot pot add the “butter” and whisk in the flour to make a rue

Then add all other ingredients and whisk together. When the cauliflower is very soft, add it to the sauce.

Pour it over a potato and pile on a side salad. The key to healthy eating is variety so get a salad that has something more than romaine lettuce.


Mixed greens

Carrot shavings (I just used a peeler)

golden raisins


a pinch of salt

a little cranberry sauce instead of dressing!
