Wicked Healthy Base Cheez Sauce

Wicked Healthy Cheese sauce

This is one of those mother sauces you can use as a base in many recipes.

We like big pictures for big-ticket items like this.

Since we consider cooking exercise here’s a 20-30 minute workout!  Did we mention it happens to be Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free, Oil-Free, so much free!  Never mind that white sauce on the left that’s for another time.

Here is the link to the previous recipe,
