Creamy Cheezie Zucchini

Creamy Cheezie Zucchini

My sister came over the other day and taught me how to make vegan bechamel sauce. Since then I’ve been eating a little bit too much of it, but nevertheless! This recipe will help you put down the dairy and pick up the soy!

While boiling the pasta, heat another pan on low heat and pour a cup of soy milk and a spoon of dairy-free butter (I like to use Nuttelex Original. You can buy this in Landers & SNR)

Stir till the butter has melted and slowly pour in some flour while stirring. It’s important to keep stirring or whisking so that the flour doesn’t clump! Add about half a cup of flour. If you want a thicker sauce add even more flour, and if you want it to be soupy, add less. Play with it!

When you find the right consistency for you, add chopped onions and garlic and continue to stir. Throw in the sliced zucchini and let simmer.

I like to add nutritional yeast to give it a cheezier flavor. Add about two tablespoons. If your sauce has become too thick for your liking, add a dash more soy milk and continue to stir.

You’re nearly done!

Drain your pasta, mix it in with the sauce and add salt and pepper to taste.

There it is! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do ūü•í

Bon appétit!

The glamping tents were awesome! There were 2 queen sized airbeds, a lamp, a mirror, an aircon/fan (depending on which tent you choose), and a safety box. Only people staying at the glamp site were granted permission to enter and the bathrooms and showers were totally clean. Use the showers before 9am to skip long lines!
