It’s so simple and versatile. It’s free of inflammatory gluten, dairy, and soy, which is great news for your health. This recipe has the option for the addition of nutritional yeast. The yeast will give this a more savory and cheesy flavor. This recipe is compliant with Whole30, Paleo and Keto eating lifestyles.
I have been using this recipe for some time. I use it to make the dips and it is great to use as a non-dairy option for everyone. There is also no added sugar.
