How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was great, filled with lots of yummy food and pie! I had to work overnight at the hospital but was able to go back to my parents house the next day to decorate gingerbread houses, a long standing tradition of ours. I spent the rest of the weekend relaxing and catching up with friends who were in town.
I actually made this recipe a few weeks ago but had so many other things I wanted to share before Thanksgiving that I’m just getting around to sharing it. My initial goal was to make a dairy-free “cheese” sauce, but that didn’t work out. However, I was psyched with this final product.
This dish is so savory and satisfying. I was inspired after spotting these hard-cider brats in Whole Foods and immediately wanted to pair them with the butternut squash noodles. I wanted to create a sauce to tie it all together and thats how this creamy herb sauce came to be. This dish is comforting and delicious. Enjoy!
2 tbsp of butter
1/2 tsp of garlic
1 cup cashew milk
1/2 cup of bone broth (or chicken broth)
1/4 tsp of rosemary
1/4 tsp of thyme
dash of salt and pepper
2 tbsp of nutritional yeast
1 tbsp of tapioca flour
I put my sauce over 1 package of butternut squash noodles and 4 hard cider brats
- Place a sauce pan on medium heat and melt 1 tbsp butter. As soon as it is melted add in the garlic until fragrant.
- Next, add the cashew milk and bone both. Continue to stir with a whisk as you add in the rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper.
- Slowly add it the nutritional yeast and tapioca flour, continuing to stir as you add.
- Turn the burner to low and stir periodically as you prepare the rest of the dish.
- In a large frying melt the other tbsp of butter and toss in the butternut squash noodles. I use tongs to make sure they are well coated with the butter and cook evenly.
- I cut the brats in half (long-ways) and cook them on both sides. Most come already cooked but I like them to be browned on all sides.
- Add the sauce to the butternut squash noodles and toss to coat completely. Top with a sausage and enjoy!
