Cheeze Sauce-Revisted

You might remember a few months ago i did a vegetarian cheese using garbanzo beans. It was okay, but nothing compared to my new one! This recipe is probably one that I am most proud since starting my blog. It started out as a quick topping for potatoes and took on a life of its own once I tasted it and realized how yummy it was and how much it tasted like queso. If you are looking for what it tastes like, just like that queso you can get at Chilis just, you know, better tasting and better for you! Kid-friendly as well! Need to sneak in more veggies do this! You can't tell the difference. The carrots give it a sweetness, the potatoes give it thickness and the nutritional yeasts gives it the cheesy nutty flavour that is so yummy! Super inexpensive to make and relatively easy and quick you will be smiling with joy as others wolf this down thinking it is real queso.
