After sleeping in, jumping into some cozy clothes, and drinking a hot cup of coffee the first thing I do is find a recipe that sounds warm and comforting. This time, I was browsing through my Instagram feed, waiting for something to call out, “pick me!” The Coconut Oil Granola recipe from Pinch of Yum stopped me in my tracks.

    Creamy Vegan “Cheese” Sauce

    I’m not vegan but, man, I love a good vegan “cheese” sauce. Here’s why: you control the flavors, consistency, and can go so many directions with it! I like my sauces pretty flavorful, a little spicy, and relatively thick (don’t you just love when the sauce sticks perfectly between the ridges of a rotini?) There are a few things that make this sauce great: Cashews- you can use walnuts or almonds, but the consistency won’t be quite as smooth Vinegar- this provides a great acidity for the sauce, you could also use lemon juice! Spices- the spices in this sauce give it the great flavor and make it so versatile!…
