Any idea for non-nut sunflower seed substitutes? (Nut allergy here! I can’t find nut-safe sunflower seeds.) Thanks!

Hmm that is a tough one. If you aren’t gluten free, you can always use bread crumbs or cracker crumbs.

Just made this , it’s delicious, thank you! Can leftovers be refrigerated/ frozen or no?

I think it would do ok but I have never tried freezing it.

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!

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?

It does, doesn’t it.

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?

Jill Dalton December 27, 2021 - 11:14 am

They are legit but we also use Anthony’s nutritional yeast

Diana Wiens April 13, 2022 - 11:03 pm

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

Jill Dalton April 16, 2022 - 9:08 am

Sorry Diana, I don’t know of anything that can replace the nutritional yeast
