And then when Natalie said she was getting her first package of nutritional yeast this week I decided to make another batch of Mac & "Cheese" and actually bother to measure this time :-)
Keep in mind that this does not give you the same cheesy flavor as Mac & Cheese that comes out of a box with the orange powder, but it is a great alternative.
Also keep in mind that this is a basic recipe and you should feel free to add things or increase certain flavor profiles to fit your own taste.
But I do think this recipe gives you the same creamy mouth feel of a cheese sauce and I like how easy it is to tweak it and try out something new each time I make it.
My Mac & "Cheese"
1 Tbsp of Earth Balance Spread
1 Tbsp of All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
1 tsp of Miso Mayo (you can substitute miso paste)
1/2 tsp of soy sauce
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
1/2 tsp of onion powder
1/4 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp of sweet paprika
1/4 tsp of tumeric
