I have been disillusioned so many times with "cheese sauce" recipes, but after reading the reviews, I decided to give this a try.....sooo glad I did!  It is wonderful and as another poster put it - it has opened up an many possibilities.  I am only on my second batch, but my ideas are running rampant!  Thanks so much for a real cheese recipe!

This is great! I didn't use pimentos, since I didn't have them on hand, but it turned out wonderfully! I used unsweetened plain almond milk, 2 fresh garlic cloves instead of garlic powder, and a bit of fresh onion instead of the onion powder. I also wanted to leave it raw, and even though it wasn't super thick, it was still a wonderful addition to whole wheat pasta with tomatoes and spinach. Also a great dip for pita chips!

It made quite a bit, and I have leftovers. I'll definitely be making this again.

oooohhhh this turned out GREAT for me. I used vanilla soy milk and threw in about 3/4 cups of cashews. I poured it over sauteed tofu, spinach leaves, onion, asparagus and mushrooms. Really tasty and I will for sure be using this waaaaay more often! Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe!!!!! Kiss

I am going to a super bowl party today so I made this recipe and added salsa to it to use as a queso dip....very good! Then I made a second batch and substituted jarred roasted red peppers for the pimentos, equally as yummy!

Oh my, this sauce is amazing!
This is the second recipe I've tried making for a cheese sauce and its perfect. I didn't add pimentos though, since I don't have any.
I'm eating it right now with elbow noodles. :D
I do think next time I will add less corn starch if I'm using it for macaroni. And probably no salt, since I don't really like salt.

I'm a new veg covert...so this is the first "cheese" I've made. Texturally, I think it's perfect....it doesn't taste like cheese to me at all. It's a good flavor for sure, just not what I expected. I mixed it with some soyrizo and put it on top of veggies for some nacho-esque flavors which was rad.
