Vegan “Cheese” Sauce
I bought nutritional yeast flakes and so I’m writing a series of recipes that use them up. I am loving it!
This was an easy recipe that adds a lot of flavor to basically anything you want to put it on.

I added this to spaghetti squash (still vegan) and then I added ground turkey (not vegan but delicious!)
