“Cheesy” Sauce

This is a gluten free version of the “Melty Nutritional Yeast ‘Cheese'” recipe from The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook.


  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour (I used Trader Joe’s, but am going to try chickpea flour next time, for added protein.)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 Earth Balance (any oil is probably fine, but I wanted the buttery flavor)
  • 1 tsp wet mustard


  • Mix dry ingredients in a saucepan.
  • Whisk in water.
  • Cook over medium heat, whisking, until it thickens and bubbles.
  • Cook 30 seconds, then remove from heat.
  • Whip in margarine and mustard.
  • It will thicken as it cools but will thin when heated, or add water to thin it.

I made a really simple meal with a baked sweet potato, steamed green beans, and an veggie burger (I used Engine 2 brand). I sprinkled some chopped sundried tomatoes, and bac’un bits on top of my potato. It was simple, but the “cheese” sauce gave just the right amount of flavor!
