Cheese Sauce #2

Mac & Cheese Sauce #2INGREDIENTS:
1 can Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 roasted red pepper (rinsed from jar or prepared from fresh)
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1 tablespoon Bragg’s liquid aminos or low-sodium soy sauce
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup water
Sriracha Hot Sauce to taste

In a blender, beans, roasted red pepper, nutritional yeast flakes, liquid aminos, cayenne pepper, and water. Blend on high until smooth and set aside. Add water for desired consistency.

This is my go to cheese-like sauce when I make macaroni and cheese. It’s quick and easy and tastes good. It seems to hold up well if you have leftovers and reheat it.

Queso Dip

1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
dash garlic powder
dash cayenne pepper (optional)
corn starch (as needed)
1 cup water
1 1/4 cups salsa or 10 oz. can of Rotel

In a saucepan combine dry ingredients (nutritional yeast, flour, paprika, salt, and garlic powder). Whisk in water. Continue to whisk constantly over medium heat until mixture is thick and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in Rotel. Return to low heat and cook just long enough for Rotel to heat.
