This is quick and easy, and I love it with vegetables or over rice. It gives a nice creaminess to everything! I thought I got this from Recipezaar but can't find it so I'm posting it so I won't lose it! Feel free to add soy sauce if you like.

This turned out great. I added these ingredients to make a great queso sauce (and I used un-chicken broth instead of vegetable broth):
2 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne
salt pepper to taste

This definitley turned out more like a gravy then a cheese sauce for us, which may be due to the fact I used a dark rich veggie stock. Regardless it was great over potatoes one night and veggies & rice the next! Very versatile & easy! Thanks Sharon!! Veg*n Swap 25!!

Nice and easy and yummy! I used the same seasonings as White Rose Child. It was the perfect thing on some leftover roasted potatoes.
