Dairy Free Cheesey Sauce

Cheese pasta is our house is always a quick easy dinner for the kids when Chris and I feel like something different to the kids, or I'm going out somewhere in the evening and need something quick. My kids love it and they always scoff the lot! I used to make the sauce and then mix in some white soup I make but lately I just make it all at the one time because it's so much easier.

If you've got a Thermomix it's really easy and will only take a few minutes. If you don't, I'd puree the veggies first and then follow your usual method for making a white sauce using the ingredients below and then you could just mix in the pureed vegetables at the end. You can use this sauce as a base and sauté some other yummy ingredients as well to jazz it up a bit and stir through at the end - use your imagination here, there are so many options.

Here are some simple ideas:

  • chopped ham (my kids favourite and super easy)
  • bacon and leek - add some mushroom as well if you like
  • chicken and mushroom
  • left over roast meat and roast vegetables
  • sautéed vegetables and garlic

Dairy Free Cheese Sauce Recipe

Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, soy free


100g cauliflower
100g peeled zucchini
50g carrot
30g coconut oil
50g arrowroot starch
1½ tbsps nutritional yeast
½ tsp salt
500g dairy free milk

Thermomix Method:

  • Chop cauliflower, peeled zucchini and carrot on speed 5 for 10 secs
  • Scrape down the vegetables
  • Add the coconut oil
  • Cook on speed 1 at 100 °C for 5 minutes
  • Add all other ingredients and cook on speed 4 at 90 °C for 7 minutes
  • Puree on speed 10 for 20 secs - this makes the vegetables totally undetectable
  • Pour sauce over cooked pasta and add other sautéed ingredients of choice if desired

Now the best thing about this sauce is you can freeze left overs for another night. I freeze in ice cube trays so I can just take out what I need. I let it defrost in the fridge overnight and then just stir it through the hot pasta. 

You could also use this cheese sauce for other dishes like lasagna, drizzle a bit on pizzas, on jacket potatoes..... anywhere that you would use a cheese sauce.
