I had forgotten how good this was.
1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup water
1 Tbs. Braggs Liquid Aminos
1 Tbs. arrowroot powder or cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. Real Salt
1 tsp. prepared mustard, Dijon if possible
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. liquid smoke
3/4 cup nutritional yeast
3 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
1 (8 oz.) container Better Than Cream Cheese
Chopped nuts (optional)
Put flour in a dry pan over medium heat; stir constantly until the flour is a bit brown. Wisk in remaining ingredients (except oil, Better Than Cream Cheese and nuts) stirring until mixture is very thick. Remove from the heat and add the olive oil; let cool until barely warm. Stir in Better Than Cream Cheese and refrigerate until very cold. Form mixture into a ball and roll it in the chopped nuts.
Note: I don’t usually form it into a ball, I just put it in a storage container and refrigerate. When I serve it we put it into individual smaller containers (like a custard cup) to eat with crackers, etc.
