In a saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat Saute the red onion until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and saute for 1 minute until fragrant. Mix the beans in with the onions. Add the milk and broth and whisk until well-combined. Add as much liquid as you need for the amount of sauce you want. Mix in the grated parmesan, a pinch of nutmeg and add salt and pepper to taste. Bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer and thicken for a few minutes. Serve with pasta or veggies.
When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her Bronx neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook, mostly by watching TV cooking shows, especially Christina Pirello and Rachael Ray. That led to the creation of
The “V” Word web site which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Because if you can have the foods you love, the foods you crave, the foods you grew up with, all in a compassionate, cruelty-free way, why wouldn’t you? Rhea has written several e-cookbooks which are available on her web site. She shares her life with a rescued Westie mix named Benoni and a rescued husband named Tom who both went on the vegan
journey with her. It is Rhea’s hope that she can spread the “V” Word to bring more compassion into the world and it is her dream to become the vegan Rachael Ray.
