While it doesn't really taste like cheese, the flavour is good and the texture is pretty good, too! I didn't have any white miso when I made it, and I used a healthy dash of cayenne pepper. I also didn't have onion powder, only flakes (which I added). I also used probably 1/8 tsp more of mustard powder. I used Tinkyada brown rice elbow pasta. BTW, shandi
, you GOTTA try this stuff!!!

Easy Macaroni and Cheeze
You can make this dish creamier by adding Earth Balance margarine. Try it the low-fat way first, and if you need it to be richer, add a little margarine to taste. This recipe is also low in sodium, so salt-lovers may need to add salt.
1 pound pasta (regular or gluten-free)
1 1/4 cups water
1 cup plain, fat-free soymilk (may use other non-dairy milk)
3/4 cup nutritional yeast
3 tablespoons cornstarch or potato starch
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
pinch cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons tahini
1 teaspoon mellow white miso (or additional salt)
black pepper to taste
Put the pasta on to boil according to package directions. While it's cooking, blend all remaining ingredients together in a blender. When the pasta is al dente, drain it, reserving about 1/2 cup of the cooking water, and return the pasta to pan. Add the sauce mixture and cook, stirring, until mixture boils and thickens. Add a little of the pasta water if more moistness is needed.
If the sauce is not as flavorful as you'd like, add a little more mustard and onion powder
