  1. This is delicious, full of flavor, healthy and very easy to make. I sometimes use a little more nutritional yeast than the recipe calls for and add a little fresh lemon juice and/or lemon zest to crank the flavor up a notch.

    • Thanks for trying it. I agree, it’s delicious! I also agree about flavoring it the way you like. I once made this dish for my sister in Florida, and without the exact same ingredients that I use at home, it was a little different and needed adjustments.

    • Any unsweetened non dairy milk will be fine. Almond, Cashew, Oat, Hemp, Rice, etc. Each will impart a slightly different flavor.
