Here are two fantastic recipes for no-cheese cheese sauce - because you can never have too much cheese, right?
Jill McKeever's Cheese Sauce
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons onion granules
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 12-oz. jar Roasted Red Bell Peppers (Use whole jar, do not drain)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
4 cups warm water
1/4 teaspoon Pecan or Apple liquid smoke *Optional - I don’t use)
Using a high speed blender, (I use a Vitamix) blend on high for five minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken. You can hear the Vitamix motor working harder as the sauce cooks and thickens. The cheese will thicken as it cools, as well. The recipe makes about six cups and is delicious over nachos, broccoli, pasta, and MUCH more!
"Not Nacho Cheese" Cheese Sauce
2 cups boiled potatoes
1/2 cup boiled carrots
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2/3 cup water, more if needed
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp salt
Blend all ingredients in a blender or Vitamix until smooth!
