Nutritional Yeast Sauce/Spread

What you need: 

1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons margarine or oil
3 cups or more soy milk
1 dash garlic powder (1/8 tsp)
about 1 tablespoon salt

What you do: 

Mix flour, yeast, margarine, and enough soy milk to mix and make pasty in a saucepan. Heat over medium till slightly bubbly. Add garlic powder. Slowly add in remaining soy milk, beating with a whisk. Add salt and cook till thickens to a desired consistency, adding water if needed.
I usually make this thick, and it cools into more of a spread-like sauce which can be spread on bread. It's really good on baking powder biscuits right out of the oven.
I also add about 2 tablespoons water per 3 tablespoons sauce when pouring it over pasta.
This is really good mixed with broccoli in the sauce for a kind of broccoli-cheese like sauce.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I just made this, using nutritional yeast for the first time ever and have to say it was really tasty!
Though I did make a few modifications. As I was only making it for myself I used 1tbsp yeast, 1/2tbsp corn starch a pinch of garlic salt with a mix of water and soya milk (enough to make it  nice and thick). I combined mine with a mix of veggies and the results were fab! Thanks for this :)

3 cups does sound like a lot of liquid -- I use less and add more later if it gets too thick. You have to let it boil, otherwise it won't thicken up properly. If it's still soupy, just let it cook down a little more. It will also thicken up a little bit after it cools a bit. I love this sauce-- we add a smidge of mustard and/or hot sauce and use it in "quesa"-dillas.

yum. i poured it over broccoli. i know next time to use a little less soy milk to make it less soupy. i think with very little modification this recipe could make a nice cream o' broccoli soup! YUM

*(nods)* Yeah, sometimes it's hard to get it to thicken. It depends a lot on what kind of pan you're using (and your elevation, I think... I'm at a higher elevation, we have to add extra water to EVERYTHING here).

And thanks, I actualy never thought about making a soup out of this! Hehe. I love broccoli-cheese soup, so I'm really going to have to do that.
