Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan "Cheesy" Sauce.

The weather yesterday was much like todays, a little bit cold and loads of glorious rain! It was the perfect excuse for a cosy, lazy arse day on the couch watching movies and eating comfort food. Ella and I really wanted something for lunch that involved pastry but all of the gluten free pastry available in the shops is pretty ordinary (not to mention full of less than ideal ingredients) and I couldn’t be bothered making any! Cue a delicious bowl of gluten free, dairy free and vegan “cheesy” pasta.

Although I stirred the sauce through some brown rice penne pasta yesterday, I usually use this sauce with lasagne and it also works beautifully with scalloped potatoes. I make this sauce in my Thermomix but it can also be made on the stove top and I've included both instructions. I haven’t tried it but I reckon the nuts and water could be replaced with 600 grams of rice milk to make it nut free. Enjoy! Xx
