Since vegetables are our theme this month for the “Recipe of the Week” blog series, I figured there was no better side dish to make than a vegan version of cheesy broccoli!

Cheese is traditionally made from cow’s milk and contains saturated fat, cholesterol, and pus. Yes, pus. The best thing about vegan cheese is that you can make a sauce with it, and it won’t be contaminated with all the junk that’s in dairy cheese. How awesome is that?

Cheesy Broccoli on a plate

Cheesy Broccoli
2 tsp. olive oil
1/3 bag frozen broccoli
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
3 Tbsp. soy milk
1/2 tsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Dash chili powder

  • Put the olive oil and broccoli into a pan and cook over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until tender.
  • Mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Place the broccoli on a plate and drizzle the sauce over it.

Makes 2 small servings

Yum! What’s your fave vegetable?

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
