      Tips: 

      • Soy-free, dairy-free cheese is usually based on coconut, rice, almonds or peas so check the ingredients label carefully to ensure it is suitable.
      • DO NOT use a lactose-free cheese as this will contain cow’s milk protein
      • This sauce can be made in a pan or a microwave.
      • Use a whisk rather than a spoon when stirring it to prevent it going lumpy
      • Double the quantity and freeze in individual portions
