Hi! What is braggs? Soy sauce? Thank you

It is called Braggs liquid amino acids. Most grocery stores Cary it now or you can order online. It tastes similar to soy sauce but has 1/10 the Sodium

I don’t have a recipe yet but we normally chop up mushrooms and onion super small and season like taco meat🤗

I was just wondering what the purpose of the raisins was in the cheese sauce. Also, would this cheese sauce be good on pasta?

The raisins are to give a slight sweetness. I think this sauce tastes good on just about everything. Wait till you taste it. You’ll see🤗

My daughter has a tree nut allergy. Do you have a nut free “cheese ” recipe. Also I live near Cary. You should do live seminars!

Cannelloni beans can sometimes be a good substitute.
