I'm back betches! Coming at you from the beaches of Santa Monica with a cool drink in had. And by beach, I mean rain-stricken studio apartment. And by cool drink, I mean the cup of coffee I've already re-heated three times. But I'm in California!
If you haven't been following along my Instagram stories, Mr. Rob road-tripped across the country to sunny...welp, rainy for a week straight California. After a blogging break, much need influx of green veggies, and all the naps for this time change thing, I am back and ready for action!
First up to the plate: The Whiz.
That melty, neon river of whiz. Kinda like the movie theater popcorn butter. You're not exactly sure what's in it. You're not exactly sure you want to know what's in it. And it tastes better when eaten in copious amounts. But hey, if I'm gunna have fake cheese around here, I might as well know what's going in it.
Here's what this vegan cheese sauce has that can only ever be a sparkle in the OG whiz's eye.
Beta Carotene. That neon color is all natural, baby. Just ask my palms. They know that color all too well from the garden of orange veggies I eat.
Nutritional Yeast. Yes, YEAST. It's what gives it that cheesy flavor, and also a good dose of fiber, protein, and b vitamins.
No oil. Well I guess this is one thing it DOESN'T have, but yup, no oils here. Trust me, they won't be missed.
Let me just tell you that making a vegan cheese sauce isn't as time or money consuming as it's lead up to be. Especially this one if I'm gunna toot my own hybrid, electric horn.
This one just takes 1 blender, 5 minutes, and 9 ingredients to reach it's peak neon cheesy and nacho-worthy potential.
Money-Saving Tips for this Vegan Cheese Sauce Recipe:
- Buy in bulk. I found my nutritional yeast in the bulk section of my grocery store which is less expensive than the pre-packaged options.
- Mash your own. The pre-mashed sweet potatoes are convenient, but pricey. Cooking them yourself in the microwave is easy and affordable.
- Use store brand. Common ingredients like vinegar, mustard, and spices can be less expensive for the same taste and quality.
