This sauce is definitely smart! So fooling, it contains no sugar, no gluten, and has a bulk of not just rich cheeses!
If you are following THM, serve this with vegetables sticks for a nice S.
With chips it would be a crossover.
You can be a bit more generous with this if using a little as your fat source in an E. About 1/4 cup should keep you within your limits. It is delicious as a topping for a salad with refried beans! (Look for my smart refried beans, soon!)
Smart Cheese Sauce:
1 small head of cauliflower, steamed
2 raw carrots, chunked
1 cup low-fat keifer OR drinkable yogurt OR 0% Greek yogurt
1/4 cup lemon juice, fresh or from a bottle
2 tsp brewers yeast
1 teaspoon real salt
4 cups grated cheese (I have used cheddar or a Mexican four cheese blend)
1/4 cup oat fiber
1 teaspoon glucomannan
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes OR 2 pickled hot peppers, chopped OR 1 jalapeño pepper, finely minced
Combine veggies, keifer lemon juice and spices in blender. Blend well, then add grated cheese, oat fiber and glucomannan. Blend well, again. Add hot peppers, pickled peppers, or red pepper seeds, and gently pulse a few times, just enough to slightly incorporated them into the sauce, but do not blend.
Pour into a bowl. May serve warm if desired, or refrigerate and serve cold or reheated.
