    This is an excellent dip for nachos, or cheese for "mac and cheese" however, if you expect it to taste exactly like it's dairy counterpart, you will be disappointed

      I haven't tried this recipe yet, but i noticed the ingredients list nutritional yeast as being the same thing as brewers yeast. This is not true. Brewer's yeast is quite bitter and will not work well if a recipe calls for nutritional yeast.

      As a new vegan, this was the first vegan "cheese" I've tried, so I don't have a lot to compare it to, but nonetheless I was pleasantly surprised. :) I wasn't expecting it to taste like the real thing so that helped, but my mom who was expecting it to taste more like real cheese was a little taken back. She liked it alright but wasn't a big fan of it. I used nutritional yeast flakes of course (as others have mentioned), and I didn't have cayenne pepper so I substituted w/chili powder. I didn't add the tomatoes because I was using it over rotini noodles to make sort of a "mac and cheese." The texture was great and I thought this "cheese" sauce enhanced the noodles, though I can't imagine using it as a dip or for anything else really, which is why I gave it a 4 out of 5. I loved the simplicity and easiness of it all. Thanks for this recipe!

      I used this for burritos. With the nooch, I am sure it is more nutritious than just throwing Daiya on top. I can't wait to use the leftovers for mac and cheese.
