  1. We are making this now but has to pop on and say wowww the cheese sauce itself is sooo tasty! We made our own plant-milk from cashews+ hemp seeds. Subbed lemon juice for the vinegar and added 1 tablespoon miso! thank you so much for this recipe!

  2. This turned out great. I used lentil pasta, with gf panko for the topping. Is it just me, or does Bragg’s taste like hot dogs?

  3. Where do you purchase the Nutritional Yeast which is basically like “cheese”? have been getting promotions on line from Noochy Licious (Deals.Gloriousalternatives) out of Cedar Rapids, IA, but can’t get the order to go through; are they legit?

  4. What can I use instead of nutritional yeast. It does not agree with me. I have noticed that so many people use it in recipes now. Thanks Diana

  5. Your video offers a 55% discount for the Nooch nutritional yeast but i cent figure out how to get this deal. Can you help?. Thank you
