Steamed veggies with vegan creamy walnut sauce

My dinner tonight was a huge bowl of steamed veggies with a creamy walnut sauce. This meal could have pasta or rice added to it, but tonight I just decided to do the veggies because I wasn’t hungry enough for the extra carbs. Honestly, the sauce is pretty filling anyway even just on vegetables due to the walnuts and whole wheat flour. I’m stuffed!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup finely chopped raw walnuts
  • 2 cups unsweetened milk substitute (I used almond)
  • 2 Tbsp Earth Balance
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 3 Tbsp whole wheat flour

Method:

  1. Combine walnuts, milk substitute, Earth Balance, and spices in a sauce pan.
  2. Heat to a low boil over medium heat, stirring to prevent burning. Remove from heat before a rolling boil is reached.
  3. Whisk in nutritional yeast and flour to desired consistency (add more milk or more flour to adjust to your liking.)
  4. Use sauce to top meal – would work great on pasta, veggies, baked potatoes, and more!
