No Nooch Vegan Cheese Sauce! This is the best vegan cheese sauce, it’s whole foods plant-based with no processed ingredients including no ‘nooch’ aka nutritional yeast as the vegan community fondly calls it. Nutritional yeast is one of those things it’s easy to get addicted to and then you want to put it on everything. I’ve found what works best for me is to avoid those addicting foods all together so I can taste and enjoy the flavors of whole foods.
It wasn’t till I read books by Anthony William the ‘medical medium’ where he mentions nooch is pretty much MSG, that I cut it out all together. The one thing I wasn’t sure I’d be able to pull off was vegan cheese without nutritional yeast, but luckily this turned out pretty epic. In fact, my husband says this is my best vegan cheese sauce yet and he prefers it without nooch!
This recipe is also very easy to make and comes together in a matter of minutes. One full recipe will make you a LOT of cheese, and as it cools it firms up nicely so can play with that to find a texture that works for you. With just one recipe of this cheese I was able to make vegan mac n’ cheese, vegan quesadillas, and vegan cheese fries! YUM. It’s also oil-free, low fat, soy-free, and gluten-free. So hopefully this will work for nearly anyone with allergies! If you are allergic to nuts substitute some cooked white beans instead. 🙂
