Kaylees Melty Nutritional Yeast Pseudo Cheese SauceFrom julesong 8 years ago
- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast shopping list
- 1/4 cup cornstarch shopping list
- 2 Tablespoons flour shopping list
- 1 teaspoon salt, to taste shopping list
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder shopping list
- 2 cups water, divided shopping list
- 1 teaspoon yellow mustard (try Dijon for a different, less sharp, taste) shopping list
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil (can decrease amount to 1/3 cup, if concerned about fat content) shopping list
How to make it
- Mix the dry ingredients in a saucepan.
- Whisk in 1 cup of water and cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until it thickens and bubbles.
- Remove from heat and whisk in the oil and mustard.
- Return to the heat and gradually add the remaining 1 cup water.
- Cook until thickened and bubbly, and it’s about the consistency of a nacho cheese sauce (or to your preference)
- Spoon onto the pizza or lasagna and broil until golden.
- Possible additions: green onions, dried minced onion, dried basil and/or oregano, a sprinkling of paprika, chili powder, ancho chile powder, etc. Be creative!
- Note: nutritional yeast doesn’t automatically have lots of B12 in it, by the way. It’s just often fortified with it. Make sure you ask your supplier when buying it, or check the label. Also, B12 is light sensitive, so keep your yeast cool and dark, and buying it out of open-lit bins probably isn’t a good idea if you’re using it to supplement your diet.

I love nutritional yeast and I love Firefly. this recipe is a hit.
I used it over biscuits minus the mustard.
delicious.groshing in Edwarsdville loved it
I just made this and while it was pretty tasty, I didn't think it tasted very cheesy (though it did have the smooth texture of melted nacho cheese sauce). It was more like a chickeny/savory gravy. I think I'm going to try it on some roasted potatoes.atomicbunnie in loved it
