Faux Cheese Sauce

What you do: 

1. Put flour, tahini and water in a jar. Cover, and shake vigorously until the tahini is dissolved.
2. Put the mixture in a small saucepan and heat on medium.
3. Stir in the remaining ingredients until mixture begins to bubble.

By the way, I like to: (1) Mix the tahini with the water in jar as the recipe says, but set it aside (ie I don't pour it into the pot and heat on medium).  (2) Then I melt the margarine in a pot and add the flour to the margarine.  (3) Slowly add the tahini & water mix, mixing as I add so the lumps dissolve.  (4) Add the spices and nutritional yeast along the way (5) Slowly add the soy milk the same way the tahini & water mix was added. 
I do it all at medium heat until it bubbles, as the recipe says, and then low to thicken.
So far, I've used white flour (it wasn't even unbleached; my Grand-Mother gave me a big honkin' bag of it--might have been a 'sale'--how could I refuse?), but I want to try other flours, eg oat, whole wheat, chick pea flour...

It's such an awesome recipe.  I like to double it.  It keeps well in the fridge if you have extra; I've usually finished it by the time a week is done, but it probably keeps much longer.

It's great in dinner dishes with beans...  My favourite is spread on pita or naan and then toasted in the oven: divine!  Great as a side with a bean dish.  Enjoy:)


This is a very tasty sauce.  Definitely a keeper; I'll be making this sauce a lot.  I can imagine many dishes this would be awesome with...  Thanks sdaffron  :)


Simple and good.
I did not add the "fat".
Nice and easy.
