Easy Breezy Cheezy Sauce

This recipe is from the vegan cookbook Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz.

Recipe: see page 173 of Appetite for Reduction.
Vegan cheeses are an acquired taste. Most have nutritional yeast as an ingredient, which is
different from the yeast used to bake bread. It has a nutty, cheesy flavor to it, so it's pretty good for making cheese-like sauces. It's kind of like nacho cheese. It's orange and functional, just don't expect it to win any awards for taste. But if you are a vegan and you've given up animal-based cheeses, sauces like this can be a welcome addition to steamed vegetables. Plus, in the case of this recipe from Appetite for Reduction, no fat or cholesterol. Try finding an animal-cheese without that.

Ingredients: nutritional yeast, flour, onion flakes, granulated garlic, turmeric, broth powder, prepared mustard, water, salt
