Creamy Mushroom Sauce

IMG_1291-800qm This Creamy Mushroom Sauce is so simple to make and it’s raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo-friendly too!

Just put everything into a Vitamix and it’s ready to go!

I’ve used this sauce over pasta with added veggies (Pasta with Asparagus and Creamy Mushroom Sauce), over quinoa and even mashed cauliflower (mashed potato replacement) and cauliflower rice.

Traditional Creamy Mushroom Sauces usually have butter, heavy cream and cheese, but this one is raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo-friendly too!

      Hi there Becky! I just bought a spiralizer recently and have been making zucchini noodles too! I love it since I really can’t eat regular pasta anymore and yes, this sauce would be perfect with zucchini noodles.

      I am very close to being finished with the cookbook and am hoping (with my fingers crossed!) to have it finished within the next 30 days.

      Oh, and thanks to your suggestion, I added the “comment luv” feature to the comments section so you can check the box after your comment to get notified when your comment is answered…so thanks for that suggestion!

      Hope you enjoy the recipe 😉
