I had some button mushrooms to finish off in the fridge and thought a creamy sauce would be good. Here goes:
Ingredients: Button mushrooms, half an onion, 1 garlic clove, 2 tablespoons of olive spread, a mug of soy milk, 2 tablespoons of flour, half a lemon, 1teaspoon of nutmeg, whole meal pasta.
Chop your mushrooms, garlic and onion. Place your pasta in a pan of boiling water, then turn down to simmer. Fry your onion and garlic clove for 5 minutes in olive oil, then add your mushrooms.
For the cheese sauce, melt your olive spread in a pan.
The next step is to create a roux. Once your olive spread is melted, add your two tablespoons of flour and stir.
Return the pan to the hob and gradually add the soy milk, stirring. Once the sauce has thickened up, you can add some grated vegan cheese if you like and then a teaspoon of nutmeg too, for a little sweetness.
Creamy sauce can be quite heavy on your palette, so to lighten it up a little, squeeze half a lemon on top. A quick, simple meal suitable for vegans and everybody else!
