Cashew Nut ‘Cheese’ Sauce (Vegan)

Ok I admit, I am jumping on the Veganuary band-wagon here BUT only for a day (because….. well, bacon…?!)Here is a delicious ‘cheese’ sauce which is so versatile. I call it a ‘cheese’ sauce because the Nutritional Yeast Flakes in it add a deep umami ‘cheesy’ flavour which is absolutely delicious – especially when served over cooked Broccoli. I have created this for my dairy-free readers here on Fats of Life..

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 6.1g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
