This is from Vive le Vegan by Dreena Burton. This recipe calls for a lot of soy milk--add as much or as little as you like. I found that 1/2 cup made a thick, creamy sauce. I made this with arugula, and it also turned out tasty but a little bitter. This sauce was delicious served over pasta with cherry tomatoes and parmesan cheese.
