Creamy Vegan Cheese Sauce (Nut Free) Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 5 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes


6 Tbsp Olive Oil

5 Tbsp All Purpose Flour

4 cups Soy Milk (960ml)

1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard

1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast (30g)

1/2 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper


1 tsp Onion Powder

1 tsp Garlic Powder

Grated Vegan Cheese


1Add the olive oil to a pot on the stove and turn the heat to medium high.

2When the oil begins to heat up, add the flour, stirring briskly all the time.

3Fry the flour in the oil for a bit, stirring vigorously, and then add in all the soy milk at once. Stir vigorously. Alternate with a hand whisk and a wooden spoon while it heats up to prevent any lumps from forming.

4Continue to stir until the sauce begins to thicken.

5You will usually reach the right thickness a few minutes after the sauce has reached boiling point.

6When it has reached the desired thickness remove from the heat (bear in mind that it will continue to thicken as it cools).

7Stir in the mustard, nutritional yeast, salt and ground black pepper.

8Taste test and see how you like it. If you want to intensify the flavors, add in the onion powder and garlic powder and stir in. Depending on what you want to use the cheese sauce for, you may prefer it plain or you may want to intensify the flavors with the onion and garlic powders.

9Serve with pasta or use as a sauce in a vegan lasagna. Add some grated vegan cheese to the sauce as well if you like.
