  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter

Tasty Tips

Serve the sauce warm with hot cooked ZENB Pasta, grilled chicken, drizzled over scrambled eggs or as a base for a creamy soup.

Riced cauliflower is often sold in both the fresh produce and frozen sections of the grocery store.

Substitute olive oil for the vegan butter.

Any unsweetened, unflavored oat or nut milk works well in this recipe.
