Creamy #Dairyfree Mushroom Sauce for #SundaySupper {#Vegan}

Happy Sunday and welcome to another great, fantastic, and fabulous #SundaySupper!  This weeks theme is "sauce" - yes, that is right sauces in all varieties.  I do not know about you, but we love sauces.  Actually when I was younger - okay a lot younger - I declared to my Mom that I could live on Spätzle, Sauce, and Salad.  Yup, that is right - there is just something so satisfying about a delicious sauce.  Our host today is DB a.k.a. Crazy Foodie Stunts - thank you so much for hosting.  

You may, or may not know this but sauces are often a little bit more challenging for our kids.  Many of the sauces in restaurants contain either butter - which is never allowed - or some other kind of milk ingredient that the girls cannot metabolize.  But you know - as I said - we all love sauces so just as you make lemonade with lemons, I make delicious creamy sauce with the "safe" items.  Now don't you wrinkle your nose because - believe me - this sauce is so good you will never miss the cow :)

Creamy Dairyfree Mushroom Sauce
  • Splash of olive oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 4 oz crimini mushrooms, cleaned and slice thinly
  • 3 sprigs of fresh type
  • 1 Tbs flour
  • 6 Tbs white wine
  • 2 C soy creamer {I prefer Wildwood brand}
  • 1 tbs. lemon juice
  • zest of 1/2 untreated lemon
  • 1 Tbs Vegan sour cream {I prefer Tofutti}
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  1. Heat olive oil in a pan and when hot add the onions with a pinch of salt.  When onions start to soften,
  2. Add mushrooms together with thyme and sauté until everything is fragrant.
  3. Carefully sprinkle 1 Tbs of flour over the veggie mixture; stir carefully to eliminate any lumps. When fully incorporated,
  4. Add Soy Creamer - stir carefully to eliminate any lumps bring to a slow simmer.  When the sauce  thickens to your liking,
  5. Add lemon juice together with the zest as well as the Vegan sour cream.  Mix well into the sauce and give it another couple of minutes or so for the flavors to combine.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste and the sauce is ready.
What to serve it on?  There are so many options;  this time I served the sauce over

- pasta together with about 3 cups of Lacinato Kale {vegan}


- serve the sauce over pork loin, pork chop, etc.
- serve it along side a Schnitzel
- serve it with fish
- for a vegan treat with a Germanic flavor serve it over pan friend tofu
- serve it with Spätzle, and a big salad

Let me know how you enjoy it :)
