2 Ingredient Vegan White Sauce: Reinventing Classics
I often hear about people who would like to convert existing recipes into new plant-based iterations and this 2 Ingredient Vegan White Sauce is a great option for recreating heavy diary cream sauces.
It brings a higher question of how we change and support ourselves in making changes that support an aligned internal vision. It is not always easy or straightforward however the most important piece I believe is that we must digest what we want to change and then take the small incremental changes that take up ever closer to that destination.

Cashews are amazing when prepared this way. This 2 Ingredient Vegan White Sauce is also affordable and can be frozen for later.
The key to having a velvety sauce is to prepare the cashews over time. I find when they can soak in fresh water for 6-8 hours and then puree in a highspeed blender, we can get the best results.
Be sure to soak them and rinse and then place them into the blender with fresh water. Puree and then use that cashew crema for whatever you are going to create.
It can be savory or sweet.

White Beans are a Nutrient Dense Food
The food we eat has a major impact on our health, but the way we prepare it can also have an effect. Eating a diet high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can lead to many health problems, such as obesity and heart disease. But what if I told you that changing these factors could make all the difference? Just by cooking your meals with whole food, plant-based ingredients, you can improve your health. Grab this free recipe ebook that incorporates flavors and principles from my Ayurvedic and Lifestyle Medicine training and it is 100% plant-based.
This is such a vibrant dish!
White beans, also known as navy beans, are nutritious and versatile legumes. They are high in protein, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals, including folate, iron, and potassium. Incorporating white beans into your diet can help improve heart health, aid in digestion, and support healthy blood sugar levels. They can be used in a variety of dishes, such as soups, stews, salads, and dips.
There are so many directions to take this white sauce base.
It can be made into nachos, created as sweet treats or even introduced over other pasta or vegetables as a bechamel or ricotta substitute.
I like to think about all the options that you can add like: fresh herbs, turmeric, basil, chaat masala
When I share a recipe on the blog, this is the food that I eat every day in our plant-based kitchen. We don’t strive for perfection, we aim for nourishment that can sustain us for the work we feel called to do while on this planet. This is a way to increase your daily protein intake.
I encourage you to reinvent and change the recipes to suit your palate and interests. In many ways, these recipes could be thought of as building blocks that will help you to create a routine in the kitchen that helps to reduce the decision fatigue that can come up. Please share your feedback on the recipes as well!
