I like your recipes, and i was going to try the healthy nacho cheez sauce recipe but it just says to cook until thickened. Being I am no where near being a chef, can you tell me what temp to cook it at, and how long?
Thanks for all your dairy free recipes!
Oh goodness, this is a recipe from back in our website beginnings, and indeed, it is too vague! I will test the Chef’s recipe and update. Based on his directions, I would cook over medium-low to medium heat, while whisking. For my own tests, I would probably make a roux to get rid of any flour-y taste – heat the oil over medium heat and whisk in the flour to make a thick paste, cooking for about a minute. Then whisk in the water, followed by the remaining ingredients. Whisk and cook until smooth and thickened.
