It is a freakin awesome recipe just had "cheese" and tomato sandwiches for lunch with it. I wonder if it can be made into a slicable cheese if agar flakes are added to it?

I like to make spicy mac-n-cheese w/ leftover sauce and boca crumbles. I also like to use taco sauce instead of salsa, it makes it taste more like that nacho cheese they have at the gas station.

I'm currently making a Three Layer Mexican Pie from fatfreevegan.com..



But I am replacing the middle "cheeze" layer with this recipe.

I will post the results when I taste it later!

I wonder if this would be as good without the earth balance.

I want to cut-out oils & added fats from my diet (as much as possible).

Is ground mustard the same thing as mustard powder?

If it's ground mustard seed, it would work, if its stone ground mustard (prepared) it is different.



I actually make a cheeze sauce with stone ground mustard though and it's good, like "pub cheese sauce".

Hmmm it actually doesn't say anywhere on the bottle. But it's all they had in the spices section. It looks like a powder though.

Nutritional yeast is what "makes" this recipe. I really do not think there are any substitutes. You could ask in the UK forums if it's avilable anywhere? I was thinking I'd seen discussion that it IS available, but I have no idea where. Or get someone to send you some? Sorry, not too helpful, I know.

I just made this. I didn't have any hot sauce, but I added almost twice as much salsa as it recommends and went a little heavy on the spices. It's really great!! I'll definitely be making it again.

Do you think that soy milk could be used instead of water, just to make it creamier?

I've never tried that but it might work. I think it's pretty creamy on it's own. I add No-Chicken broth for some of the water, too.



And I add a spritz of lemon. That really adds something.

Hallelujah!



I went to my local health food co-op last week and finally found nutritional yeast- the yellowish flaky stuff- NOT the nutritious-but-thoroughly-nasty brewer's yeast powder I had used previously.

I make mine similarly, using unsweetened soymilk and umeboshi vinegar/Red Hot or chopped jalapenos and juice and it is delicious!

I've been using nutritional yeast for a while now, so I know what it looks and tastes like. About a month ago I went to pick some up at Whole foods, but they were out and one of the employees convinced me to buy brewers yeast, since he said it is the same stuff....No, NO it is NOT! I was so disapointed because it didnt work as a substitute for flavor at all! It has more of a nutty flavor. I now only buy KAL Nutritional yeast flake, it is seriously the best tasting nutrional yeast out there, I could eat it straight out of the container!

What is it with Whole Foods and brewers yeast? They did the same thing to me... well tried anyway. I told them that I wanted to follow a specific recipe and they laid off a bit. But I've been told that it's not the same flavor at all by many people.

I made this tonight as a sauce for mac n cheese (I left out the salsa and hot sauce). Mixed it in with cooked macaroni, topped with breadcrumbs, salt & pepper, baked in the oven, and voila! Yummy mac n cheese

When I made this I used it for mac'n cheez too, but I left the salsa in--I think it really makes the sauce. It worked for you without it, though? Maybe I will try it sometime. Seems like it would still need something to add a bit of 'zing' though.



OH, I do have some advice though.. xD Though matter how tempting it might be to want your cheez really fluorescent yellow, do NOT add turmeric... It does NOT compliment the flavors at all.
