    Walnut Cheez Sauce

    This Walnut Cheez Sauce is a great way to get lots of brain healthy fats into your meal. It is nutrient dense, with anti-inflammatory turmeric, garlic, and omega -3 oils. A great way to skip the dairy in a meal. Kid-friendly!

    *Note: I have spoken with many people who equate fat=bad.  Fats are a necessary building block of every cell.  Our brains and hearts love Omega 3's.  Getting more Omega 3's vs. 6's is very beneficial and balancing.  This is why I crafted this particular recipe--most vegan cheez sauces use cashews, but walnuts are super loaded up with nutrients. Enjoy!!  This makes 1 cup and you can adjust your recipe as necessary.

    • 1/2 cup
