Cheezy Sauce Recipe


if you're thinking about veganism, either full time, part time, or whatever... pick up this cookbook: Vegan YumYum. It has pictures and delicious recipes and I love it.


if you're thinking about veganism you've probably thought, "I like cheese too much to be a vegan." It's a tough one to combat but try this cheezy sauce from the Vegan Yum Yum and you'll convert to veganism at least for one meal.

Whisk together 1/2 cup Earth Balance Vegan Margarine and 1/3 cup flour. I've used unbleached all purpose but let me know if you've tried rice flour. Do this over medium heat.
This makes a roux.
Then whisk in 1 tbsp red miso, 1 tbsp tomato paste, 3 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce), 1 tbsp lemon juice, and 1 tbsp tahini. One time I didn't have tahini and used a flax egg and it turned out delicious as well.
Whisk until this forms a red paste looking thing. Turn the heat to medium high
Then slowly whisk in 1 1/4 cup soy milk. Then 1/3-1/2 cup nutritional yeast.
Let it come to a simmer to thicken.

Then seriously pour over anything and everything: pasta for mac and cheeze, rice vegetable cheezy casseroles, boca crumbles to make a queso dip. I mean it, EVERYTHING. It isn't low calorie, it's vegan.

Happy Eating!
