Vegan cheddar cheese sauce + Vegan mac n' cheese recipe!

"Why vegan cheddar cheese sauce??!!!" you may ask.

Because cooking this is so much fun! It's like magic!! Please try it!

This recipe is from Chef Chloe's awesome cookbook, "Chloe's Kitchen"! ^^

Ingredients (serves 6):

- 1/4 cup vegan margarine (I only put 3 tablespoons though)
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour/gluten-free all-purpose flour (rice flour seems to work too!)

- 3 cups soy, almond, or rice milk
- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste (I used tomato sauce)
- 2 teaspoons sea salt (don't worry, just regular salt is fine too)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder (I omitted this)

- 1 tablespoon lemon juice 
- 1 tablespoon agave (I used maple syrup because that's the only liquid sweetener I have! Feel free to substitute it with 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar)

1) Make a roux by whisking the the margarine and flour over medium heat for a few minutes until it forms a paste.

2) Add nondairy milk, nutritional yeast, tomato paste, salt, and garlic powder to the saucepan and bring to a boil, whisking frequently.

3) Reduce heat to low and let simmer until the sauce thickens.

4) Stir in lemon juice and agave.

5) Done.
