Ingredients

    1/4 Cup Earth Balance Margarine

    1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour

    2 1/2 Tablespoon Low Sodium Tamari

    1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice, fresh

    1 Tablespoon White Mellow Miso

    1 Tablespoon Tahini

    1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste

    1 Cup Soy Milk

    1/3 Cup Nutritional Yeast
    1 Pinch Salt
    Black Pepper, to taste

Directions

Begin by heating a sauce pan and adding the earth balance.
Once melted, add flour and whisk vigorously until a smooth paste forms (Roux). Be careful not to add flour to a pan that is very hot, or your roux will be lump. If you mix in the flour as soon as the margarine is melted and you should avoid any problems.
To this paste, add tamari, lemon, miso, tahini, and tomato paste and whisk until well incorporated. The mixture should still be paste-like. Then slowly pour in the soymilk, whisking constantly, until it is completely incorporated. Add the yeast and mix well.
Cook the mixture until it thickens, whisking often. This should take approximately 5 minutes, but it’s flexible. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cook 3 cups of dry, small pasta and toss with the finished cheezy sauce. Add steamed broccoli for a real treat. Top with fresh breadcrumbs and bake at 400º for 25 minutes, or until browned and bubbly.
