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!!!!!
sorry, i did not like the taste of this at all. I was so excited because of the great reviews, but was very disappointed.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I just made this tonight and it was so very yummy. I gave up meat/dairy 3 months ago and have been very happy...but I used to looove me some mac & cheese. This really hit the spot. I'm pretty sure I'll keep some of this in my fridge on a regular basis. Oh, and I registered on this website just to say thanks for your recipe!
