Tofu Cheddar Sauce Recipe Spicy
It's been a while since last I shared a recipe. That's because I've mostly just been using recipes I've already posted.
But I did make this pretty delicious cheese sauce not too long ago. It's not vegan. It does use cheddar cheese. It is vegetarian. It can easily be vegan, if you sub plant based cheddar.
1/2 block silken tofu
1/4 cup cheddar cheese
1 shallot, sliced
3 cloves garlic
1 jalapeno, minced
1 serrano, minced
1 cup water
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp canola oil
Sauté the shallot and garlic in the oil until tender. Pour in the water and simmer until reduced by half.
Add the remaining ingredients, except the jalapeno and serrano, to your blender. Pour the shallot/garlic mixture on top. Allow to cool uncovered for 5 minutes.
Cover and puree until smooth.
If necessary add more water in 1/4 cups increments to achieve the desired consistency.
Remove the sauce to a storage container. Stir in the minced jalapeno and serrano.
