Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons non-dairy butter
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped orange or yellow bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Instructions

  1. Heat the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and add the garlic. Simmer for 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
  2. Add in the flour and cook, stirring 1-2 minutes, or until flour is cooked and lightly golden brown.
  3. Whisk in the milk and reduce heat to medium-low. Let cook a few minutes, until lightly thickened and add in the bell pepper, nutritional yeast, cashews salt, cumin and chili powder. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
