Flour Free Cheese Sauce


  • 1/2 cup water
  • fistful of cashews
  • two tablespoons of desicated / shredded coconut
  • hunk of butter
  • tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • Edam or similar cheese (about 75g)


  • blend the water, cashews and coconut with a very high speed blender for about 20 seconds
  • melt the oil and butter in an enamel pan,
  • add salt & pepper
  • add the nut milk to the pan (although don’t strain the fibres, you need those in the pan instead of the usual flour)
  • gently bring to the boil and it’ll start to thicken
  • add a dash of hot sauce as preferred
  • add the grated cheese and fold in.
  • pour over whatever cauliflour cheese thing you might do (ie caramalised onions, lightly fried capsicum, sliced and fried cauliflower, wilted baby spinach).
  • add extra cheese on top if you’re so inclined.
