      Thank you so much Sue L., for a super easy sauce. I'm not supposed to eat dairy due to IBS, and though I was tempted b/c I have the "Real McCoys" in our fridge, I passed up the real milk and cheese, and subbed Soysations brand shredded Cheddar, Jack, and Mozzarella blend, Silk unsweetened soy milk, and margarine. I cut the recipe down also, since it was just me eating this, but I have to say I'm impressed by the results - thick, creamy sauce. I didn't think this needed any salt at all, so I didn't add any. I did add a drop of Tabasco though. I used 1 1/2 tsp flour and margarine, about 1/4 cup of soy milk, (think I added in more like 1/3 cup of the cheese, so I had to add a little more milk after all was melted b/c this thickened up very nicely), and micro'd the marg for 20 secs and a total of 1 minute (2 30 sec intervals) to melt the cheese. After I added the extra milk at the end, I zapped another 20 secs to rewarm. I was really craving cheese sauce, this did so nicely. I can just imagine how much more wonderful real cheese and milk would have been! Lol. This was yummy on carrot sticks. This would also be great w/celery sticks or any cooked veggie, and prob great on pretzels, too

      This recipe really is a great idea for quick cooking. I thought I would ruin it by cooking the sauce with precooked broccoli in it, but it turned out fine, even with cold milk (the broccoli probably helped heat the milk). Thank you for a good tip!
