Serves: 6+
  • 2 medium potatoes, cut in small cubes
  • 2 large carrots, sliced
  • 5 Tbsps nutritional yeast flakes
  • 3 Tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 Tbsps tapioca starch/flour
  • some water (the water from boiled veggies)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1½ tsp salt
  1. Boil veggies until tender - 20 minutes. Remove from heat and leave them in the water for 10 more minutes.
  2. Drain them, save some water, about 1½ cup, maybe a little bit more.
  3. Put all ingredients in the food processor. Blend until smooth.
  4. Add water, little by little, until you reach the desired consistency. It has to be smooth and semi-liquid.
  5. Pour the mixture in a large pan over medium heat.
  6. Stir continuously. You'll see that this "sauce" will thicken and get sticky. Stir for about 10 minutes.
  7. Serve!
