  1. In a medium size stainless steel skillet, heat the ghee over medium heat.
  2. Scoop the cream off of the top of a can of full fat coconut milk, add the chicken stock, and whisk together with the ghee.
  3. Season with salt and pepper, nutritional yeast, and turmeric, and whisk until all of the ingredients are combined.
  4. Allow the sauce to bubble over medium heat, stirring frequently so that the sauce does not burn.
  5. While the sauce is cooking, prepare your choice of noodles to boil.
  6. Reduce the sauce, while stirring frequently for about 10 minutes, or until it is thickened.
  7. Pour the thickened sauce into your blender, and blend on high for 30 seconds.
  8. Pour the sauce over your cooked noodles, and enjoy.


This sauce needs constant attention while it is reducing. If you are using spiralized vegetable noodles, be sure to prepare them before the sauce starts cooking, so that you can focus all of your attention on the sauce. You will know when the sauce is thickened enough, because as you stir it with your spatula, it will separate from the spatula dragging through it, before coming back together.

      This is a lifesaver when you have kids. Especially ones who love mac and cheese. Love it!
