This sauce is literally amazing. I do so many things with it from mac & cheese to nachos to supreme fries, to cheesy mushroom bacun tempeh dogs. Whatever you want cheese sauce for, this has you covered.

Serves 2-3


  • 2 tbsp dairy-free butter
  • 1 tsp Truffle infused olive oil (if you don’t have this you can just leave it out) Mac & Cheese Sauce 1
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tbsp kamut flour or spelt flour
  • 120ml (1/2 cup) almond milk
  • 2 heaped tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt


  1. In a sauce pan on medium/high heat, melt the dairy-free butter and truffle oil, add the minced garlic, turn heat down to medium – low heat. Stir constantly and add flour. Keep whisking so the butter does not burn and the flour dissolves into the mixture.
  2. Add the almond milk and continue to whisk, turn heat back up to medium/high. Keep stirring occasionally as the sauce gets thicker. Once the sauce gets thicker turn the heat off.
  3. Keep stirring and add in turmeric and nutritional yeast.

Serve with your favourite macaroni pasta, as a sauce or a dip!

Spicy Tip: Add smoked paprika and chilli flakes to make a spicy version.
