The Ultimate Vegan Cheese Sauce Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 5 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 5 minutes
1 ¼ cups (10 oz.) of jewel yam, cooked and peeled (about 1 large yam)
1 cup (8 oz.) of unsweetened almond milk (unsweetened oat milk works well too)
4 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ cup (64 grams) of nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon of white miso (also known as sweet or mellow miso)
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1½ teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of siracha (optional)
1Pop your large jewel yam (which is an orange-fleshed variety of sweet potato) into the microwave and cook until soft, about 5-6 minutes. While the yam is cooking, add all of your other ingredients to a blender container: almond milk, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, white miso, garlic and onion powder, salt and optional siracha.
2Once the yam is fully cooked, carefully peel the skin away from the hot flesh, break it up into a few pieces, and add it to the blender container as well. Blend until all the ingredients are incorporated and the whole mixture is smooth and creamy. This will take about a minute, depending on your blender.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
