What's your favorite 'cheezy' sauce? This is my current fav. The veggies help give it a nice creamy texture.

For us, hands down it is this one: http://viveleveganrecipes.blogspot.c...heese-dip.html We up the nutritional yeast to 1/4 cup and add a splash more milk. I also like to add some smoky chipotle tabasco to give it a smoked cheddar feel. Yum!

Our new fast and easy can't be bothered to cook dish is mac and trees and peas. Make the sauce whilst the pasta boils and throw some broccoli, frozen peas and whatever veg you have (I tend to use a carrot and half a red pepper) in to the boiling pasta water for like the last 2 minutes of boiling. drain and mix with sauce. I add 1 1/2 cups white beans and some smoked tofu if I have some that needs to be used up.

I have recently discovered that using coconut milk in 'cheese' sauce makes it extra cheesey. I think it is the high levels of fat

I like just white sauce with Redwoods' cheezly mature cheddar, melted in....I tried using just nutritional yeast, but I didn't really like it...
If you add fried onions to the cheezly sauce, I think that helps too.

I keep plugging this cookbook everywhere I go, but here goes again: the nacho cheeze sauce recipe in Alicia Simpson's Quick & Easy Vegan Comfort Food. You can tell it's not real cheese, but for fellow nooch lovers, mmmmm, it's awesome!


Not a standard cheese sauce, but the fettuccine alfredo sauce (variation #1) in the same cookbook, also fantastic.

I made that for dinner tonight and it was delicious! I added a bit more nutritional yeast, some tamari, and tomato paste, though. Oh, and extra salt. I like my mac and cheese super salty. Yummo.

I reviewed it here:

Yes. By far my favorite. Now, that's not really saying much, because every other nooch-based sauce mix/recipe I've ever tried has been ****ing gross. But this stuff isn't just "not gross." It's delicious.

It makes some bomb ass mac and cheese. And cheese fries. And nachos. And broccoli cheese soup.

OK this has just replaced our favourite nooch sauce. This was *amazing* I can't believe how much it tasted liked my old beloved cheddar to me. We made mexican pizza and the next night had taco salad and it was heavenly...sigh...I replced the veggie broth with oat milk and it was even creamier.

I also used it as a salad dressing and it was yum.

I love her blog--full of good recipes and ideas.
