Shockingly Good Vegan Cheese Sauce

Total Time

I obtained this recipe from someone named Tracy over the vast Internet, at a website I cannot recall since I was doing a search through many at the time. Combining the below ingredients sounds wretched, but it was shockingly good! Could this be Kraft's secret?

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender.
  2. Pour into pan and stir until boils and thickens.
  3. Take off heat and pour into noodles, over broccoli or potatoes, etc.

Much better than any other nutritional yeast-based cheese recipe I've ever tried! Modifications: used whole wheat flour, left out lemon juice (didn't have any), and lowered the salt to 0.5-1tsp.

Oh man. I apparently was the only one so far to use flour - maybe this was why it tasted absolutely horrible. Now, granted, I have never had nutritional yeast before, but this sauce tastes absolutely NOTHING like cheese or Kraft Dinner sauce. I followed the recipe to the letter. If anyone has any idea as to what I could have done wrong, let me know and I would love to try again. But as is, it was inedible and too salty to even stand.

To be honest, I was skeptical. I've tried soooo many vegan "cheeses" and nothing has satisfied. Until now! This was fantastic, and this will definitely be my go-to recipe from now on. Also just wanted to mention that I believe this recipe comes from Jo Stepaniak's book 'The UnCheese Cookbook.'
