What's for lunch?? I threw this together and it was awesome! I even surprised myself! Actually it's not REAL cheese. Faux cheese of course...but I love the stuff. Can't get any better than this!
Open Face Mushroom Veggie Cheese Sandwich
Cheese sauce (recipe makes more than need)
1 1/4 c. lite soy milk
1/2 c. nutritional yeast
3/4 tbs. onion powder
3/4 tbs. garlic powder
1/4 tbs. cumin
1 1/2 TB whole wheat or white flour
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1/8 tsp. smoked paprika
pinch of extra fine sea salt
-Whisk all ingredients together in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer. Whisk until it starts to thicken. Keep whisking the sauce on low heat for about another minute and turn off heat. This will thicken more when cools. Note: Use the extra sauce for chips, burritos, tacos, top of casseroles, and more sandwiches!
Mushroom Veggie Mix
1 10 oz pkg. sliced baby bella mushrooms
1/2 c. chopped onions
1/4 c. diced red bell pepper
2 hand fulls of baby spinach
salt & pepper
-In a non-stick skillet on medium heat, saute the mushrooms and onions for 5 minutes. Add red bell pepper and stir for 1 minute. Turn off heat and add the spinach. Mix until the spinach starts to wilt.
Get your favorite bread and toast it. Spread a good spoonful of the cheese sauce all over the slice of bread. Top with the Mushroom Veggie Mix. Take a couple more good spoonfuls of sauce and top it off!
