Vegan and Gluten-Free Low-Fat Chipotle Cheese Sauce From Miyoko Schinner’s Artisan Vegan Cheese Cookbook

We’ve been having fun with Miyoko Schinner’s cookbook, Artisan Vegan Cheese. So far we’ve made vegan and gluten-free sour cream, from a base of vegan and gluten-free rejuvelac. One of the things we love so much about this next recipe is how quick and easy it is. This is the perfect option for when you’re running late starting dinner, or just want something quick and easy so that you can relax the rest of the evening.

Vegan and Gluten-Free Low-Fat Chipotle Cheese Sauce

1 cup butternut squash, cooked and mashed
3/4 cup plain, unsweetened vegan yogurt
3/4 cup water
1/2 onion, quartered
5 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 cup raw cashews
3 tbsp tapioca flour
1/2 chipotle chili in adobo sauce
1 tsp salt

Put all of the ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently for 2 to 5 minutes, until thick. If you’d like it a little spicier, you can add more minced chipotle chili.

This chipotle cheese sauce would be a delicious addition to broccoli, nachos, or over rice noodles for a delicious and easy macaroni and cheese.

Vegan and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Black Bean Chipotle Enchiladas

It’s fall, which means pumpkin EVERYTHING is upon us. Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pies and pumpkin bread will be filling bellies everywhere. We love all things pumpkin, but wanted to bring you a bit of a twist: a savory pumpkin dish.

We love pumpkin enchiladas because they are very filling, and so warming on cool autumn days. The spice of the chilies imparts a delicious contrast to the rich pumpkin. The black beans pack a mean protein punch, making this a perfect, well-rounded meal.

Vegan and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Black Bean Chipotle Enchiladas

Enchilada Filling:

1 can of organic pumpkin, we like Farmer’s Market Organic Canned Pumpkin, with BPA-free lining.
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 can organic black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 tbsp sunflower oil

1 package of corn or preferred gluten-free tortillas

Enchilada Sauce:

2 cans fire-roasted tomatoes
3 chipotles from can, plus 1 teaspoon of the adobo sauce from the chipotle chili can
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp chili powder
4 cloves of garlic
Sea salt and pepper to taste

Preheat ove to 350 degrees.

For the enchilada filling: Saute onions over medium heat in 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil until transluscent, approximately 3 minutes. Add another tablespoon of sunflower oil, then add the the rest of the enchilada filling ingredients, stirring frequently until warmed through.

For the enchilada sauce: Pour all of the ingredients into a food processor, and process until smooth and thoroughly blended.

Pour a little of the enchilada sauce into a 9×13 baking dish, so that a thin layer covers the entire dish.

Roll 1/4 cup of the filling into a tortilla and place each one into the baking dish. Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the enchiladas. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until heated through and bubbly.
