Nutritional Yeast Cheese Dip/Sauce

What you need: 

1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unbleached flour
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon dried yellow mustard powder
1 cup water
1 1/2 tablespoons vegan margarine (I highly recommend Willow Run for this sauce)

What you do: 

1. Mix dry ingredients, add water, whisk until clumps are gone.
2. Put in pot with margarine, and heat on medium until hick.
This is a very thick sauce as it is best suited for things like alfredo, macaroni and cheese, etc. It shouldn't get as thick as mashed potatoes, though, so be careful. You can add more water if you make it too thick, but it's supposed to be pretty thick.
Mixing salsa with this for nacho cheese with chips is great; adding onion powder and extra margarine works great to use in a scalloped potato recipe; extra garlic, margarine and parsley for alfredo. Try scoops of it on vegan pizza. '

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Made this as a sauce for breaded eggplant, came out terrific
(I cut down a bit on the vegan butter and flour for health reasons)
Thanks for the recipe

This was awesome!! I assumed it would be difficult to make cheese sauce, but this recipe was simple and tasty. Took maybe 10 minutes and made a thick, creamy, cheesy sauce. I served it over a baked potato with lots of broccoli. I will certainly be using this recipe often!!
Thanks!!

Has anyone used regular coconut milk for this?
i don't usually keep soy on hand and i've made this once already but can't remember if i used coconut milk or if i actually had some leftover soymilk....

Whatever i did before though, i LOVED IT! And i'm really not a "cheese alternative" fan. I added extra butter and Italian seasoning and used as a sauce for potatoes au gratin. SO GOOD!

Great, quick and easy recipe! I didn't have any garlic/mustard powder so I crushed a clove of garlic and semi-crushed up some mustard seeds. I didn't have any vegan margarine so I used olive oil. I used water, and added some cumin. I'll definitely plan on stocking up on the powders because my sauce is a bit on the lumpy side right now, but otherwise this turned out great! I've only used it as a dipping sauce for fake chicken wings so far, but I can see magnificent vegan nachos in my future!

I made this to put on a baked potato with some broccoli and it was awesome! I added a couple shakes of cumin to it and some black pepper later I think I'll stir some salsa into it and have it with some chips later. Yum!

I make this all the time and use it on everything - pizza, potato casseroles and tonight I made mac 'n cheeze with it for the first time (doubled it, added meatless ground and topped with french fried onions).  So yummy... my omni husband and I both gobbled it up!  Just love the ease and simplicity of this recipe.

Delicious! I had this oe broccoli and chickpeas. It was delicious. Next time I want to play around with using soymilk instead of water and maybe adding a bit of lemon juice This is a great versatile recipe.

I can't wait to make this.Thanks for recipe!!!!.It costs too much money to make vegan cheese with nuts\seeds such as cashews and it is time consuming...so i'm happy to find this recipe :).I wish to make a regular pizza dough with toppings: pizza sauce from can,onions, tofu crumble,and this cheese recipe.I haven't made a pizza like this before so I hope it comes out good.
