(BTW, both my SAD kids will actually eat this over macaroni with a
couple of minced veggies thrown in - it admittedly doesn't taste like
that awful orange chemistry experiment in the blue box, but it will do
in a pinch.) Experiment with the proportions and good luck, Missy.
Let me know what you think!! NOTE: We actually think this tastes much
more like cheese the second day, so you might want to try making it a
day ahead and reheating with a little more broth or other liquid (it
solidifies in the fridge).
"NOT" Cheese Sauce (as opposed to Cheese (NOT!) Sauce, lol)
1/3 cup instant mashed potatoes
2 cups water
1/4 cup peeled, sweet red pepper (1/2+ pepper) or 4oz. pimento
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons arrowroot or cornstarch (I've only used cornstarch)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons broth powder
Puree all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Strain if any
pepper is still visible (or leave in if you like bell pepper - I do). Pour
into saucepan and cook and stir over medium heat until thick and almost
boiling. Serve immediately.
