from Joanne Stepaniak's Nut. Yeast Cookbook

  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (to reduce fat, I have successfully reduced the oil by
  • 1/3 to 1/2, but don't tell on me)
Mix the dry ingredients in a saucepan.
Whisk in 1 cup of water and cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until it thickens and bubbles.

Remove from heat and whip in 1/2 cup oil and mustard.
Put back on the heat and slowly add the remaining water.

Cook until thickened and bubbly (it will have the consistency of a nacho cheese sauce).

Spoon onto the pizza or lasagna and broil until golden.
