I was paired with Shubha of Chutki Bhar Pyar in the Maitri Friendship Chain. She sent me a pretty interesting ingredient. I had no idea what so ever, as to what it was so I asked her for a clue. She said it was used in vegan cooking. Armed with that information and with lots of help from Google, I correctly guessed it was Nutritional Yeast!!! [Phew :))]
Now the second part was to find recipes :)) I got the Queso Sauce Recipe here. As usual I added my own touch to customize it.
Recipe: In a saucepan mix together 1/4 cup nutritional yeast, 1/4 cup all purpose flour, 2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1 cup water, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 cups Habanero salsa and salt to taste. Whisk on medium heat till the mixture is thick - takes about 3-5 mins. Serve with tortilla chips!!
I also want to share the picture of the beautiful Maitri package Shubha sent me. The cookies we really yummy and everyone loved them. Thank you so much Shubha, I am so glad we got to know each other courtesy of Maitri chain!!!
