SPOT ON!!! DH said this was worthy of 10 stars :D We have been fighting the hard battle trying to find a decent vegan cheese and the fight stops here. Now we only need to experiment to take this into different directions - mexican flavor, mac & cheese, the pizza alternative you mentioned...etc - however this is perfectly fine on its own. Simple ingredients, easy prep, great consistency & flavor - DH is very pleased!!! Thank you so many many times!!!!!
