Om nom nom: Vegan Cheese Sauce

I spent the better part of my Sunday being all cute and domestic. I cleaned my house up real nice (a little bit at least), planted some flowers, and cooked a bunch.

For reals.

Afterwards I picked up my momma and sister from the airport- they went to Washington to visit some colleges. I got some amazing vegan pizza at Mellow Mushroom. Seriously, so good (there are two in town if you're local : )

Then I rushed back to see my BFB (best friends brother) who was in town from Utah for the night.

 Kenny = BFB

This kid makes me laugh my makeup off my face. Liquid eyeliner stands no chance. I just love their family.

So I expiremented with making vegan cheese sauce. I was skeptical but had the ingredients so I thought I'd give it a shot.

I found this recipe online and doctored it a bit. This is how it ended up- suprisingly pretty tasty! Easy and yummy- give it a try!

1/2 cup flour
1 stick of dairy free butter
1 1/2 cups water
soy sauce
1/2 cup nutritional yeast

(I added)
1 can of green chiles
2 cloves of garlic
lotsa hot sauce (I used Cholula cause I had it one hand. Syracha would make this sooooo very yummy!)

Melt one stick of dairy free butter (pop the garlic in there too). Add flour, stirring rapidly. Add soysauce and any spices you like (chile powder, paprika, garlic, tarragon, etc). (This is where I added the can of green chiles).

When it thickens, turn off the flame. Stir in nutritional yeast. (Add a bit of water if it's too thick).

Guess what?
You're done!  Now slather it on pasta, potatoes, broccolli. Make some nachos. Woot!
