Creamy Herb Sauce

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!

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

  1. Place a sauce pan on medium heat and melt 1 tbsp butter. As soon as it is melted add in the garlic until fragrant.
  2. Next, add the cashew milk and bone both. Continue to stir with a whisk as you add in the rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper.
  3. Slowly add it the nutritional yeast and tapioca flour, continuing to stir as you add.
  4. Turn the burner to low and stir periodically as you prepare the rest of the dish.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Add the sauce to the butternut squash noodles and toss to coat completely. Top with a sausage and enjoy!
