Recipe: Paleo Cheese Sauce

Let’s get one thing straight – non dairy cheese sauces will NEVER taste as good as the real cheese sauces. Nor will they have the same stringy, gooey consistency. BUT you can still make a pretty creamy and damn delicious white sauce that is similar in texture and savouriness to that made from cheese.

I wanted to make a white sauce so I could recreate dishes like cauliflower cheese, paleo nachos and lasagna bechamel sauce. My adaptations and experimentations produced this version of  a paleo cheese sauce and I have to say that I licked every last bit in the saucepan. The coolest thing is that you can also add it to other sauces, soups and casseroles for extra creaminess.
