Vegan Cheese Sauce

Eating vegan doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive. In fact, with a toddler in the house, I prefer it to be neither.

Last week, I made this delicious cheese from the blog Veggie on a Penny. I love the fact that it’s made up of potatoes and carrots, rather than cashews and/or packaged “cheese” like many vegan cheese sauces are. Not only does this make it healthy, it also makes it cheap! The recipe was easy to whip up, made a huge quantity, and my 18 month old daughter loved it mixed with macaroni and peas. I put some freshly ground black pepper on top of my bowl, just to feel a little more adult.
