This was originally a raw food recipe. But I ended up using cooked brown rice in place of the sprouted wild rice. I think eventually I will attempt sprouting, but I just wasn’t feeling it this time around.

On to the good stuff. This cheese sauce is amazing! I love the raw food cheese sauce. I’ve made it once before for Kale chips, and really enjoyed it then too. I bet you could fool a dairy lover with this sauce! Also, the sauce does a good job of covering up the raw broccoli taste, which I must admit, is not my favorite.

Sutton rated it a 4 as a side dish. Now we ended up eating it as a meal. Oops! I didn’t look at the serving size. And after eating about a cup of it, it’s just not as good. For a meal, it was too much fat or something for me. I had a light stomach ache and some trouble digesting it. But I think a smaller portion would have been fine. The leftovers are pretty good. Not as good as the first time around. It would be better if you keep the sauce and salad separate, until ready to serve.
