This is a versatile, mild cream sauce. You can customize it to your taste and use any kind of mushroom or vegetable with it, or use it plain.

Serves 4

1 cup boiling vegetable broth
10 strands saffron
1 cup silken tofu, drained
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2-1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Fresh finely ground black pepper and vegan Parmesan for garnish, optional

Stir the saffron strands into the boiling broth and let sit for 5 minutes to infuse. Combine the broth-saffron mixture with the rest of the ingredients in a blender and blend until very smooth. Heat as needed in a small saucepan over low heat or in the microwave. Serve over capellini or with seitan cutlets with black pepper and vegan Parmesan if desired.

You can also add chopped tomato, mushrooms or shredded vegetables and cook in the sauce for a few minutes for a twist.
