Vegan Sauce à la Crème

[Vegan Fresh Cream Sauce]


...we made a lovely cream sauce to accompany our Cauliflower...

...we used a pint of Wildwood Creamer...added some salt and white pepper...you just simmer to reduce by half...

...add some lemon juice...and whisk that in...

...then finally off heat stir in some Earth Balance...

...pour it into a gravy boat...

...and pour it over the hot cauliflower...

...it was definitely creamy...just a little bit too sweet for my taste - but that's probably the fault of the creamer I used - next time I'll use my homemade soy milk that doesn't have any sugar in it...

Substitutions:
Vegan Creamer for the cream - but next time I'll use soymilk...
Earth Balance for Butter

  2. That sounds good. I'd be interested to know how it turns out when you try a different cream sub. We're not too keen on very sweet things either.
