Vegan Cheddar Cheese Sauce

Can't think of a better way to start the new year off then to introduce vegan chedda cheese sauce. I served it over nachos with just some chopped pickled jalapeno peppers at a vegan potluck. They really like it! I love to spread it on tortilla wraps and just pan fry a grilled cheese.

Not into making your own well there is a fantastic commercial cheese called Daiya or Earth Island It's not like the crap vegan cheese we had to put up with in the past. It does melt, in fact its not that great cold, its when you melt it that the magic happens! I enjoy the mozzarella and pepper jack flavors. I don't like their cheddar cheese favor as much. It's available most supermarkets (in the produce section)  

Give mine a try...if you not a fan of store brand vegan cheeses such as Daiya (not everyone likes it). Mine is it's cheaper, low in calories and very tasty. 

1 1/2 cups water   
2/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes*
2 Tbsp + 1 tsp corn starch
2 Tbsp tamari
2 Tbsp tahini
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp sweet paprika

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend. Then add to a small pot on medium heat.  Stir often till it boils. Let sauce thicken the remove from heat. The sauce will also become more thicker once it’s refrigerated. Makes 2 cups.
