A wonderful white sauce with 5 hidden vegetables and legumes that will delight young and old while being very very nutritious.

If you don't eat beans, leeks or cauliflower then this recipe is for you. There is a way to eat even vegetables and legumes you don't like by "hiding" them in delicious pasta sauces.


What vegetables does the sauce contain? Cauliflower, leek, onion and garlic. And the one legume it contains is beans. All in white shades to make our sauce white.

Tips and Substitutions

Only the white part of the leek is used.

Cut all the vegetables into the same size pieces so that they cook evenly and at the same time.

Instead of vegan feta you can use nutritional yeast. If you are not vegan use classic feta or grated parmesan.

The beans must be cooked before you put them in the blender.

Instead of almond milk you can use soy milk. If you are not vegan use milk of your choice.
