SO HOW'D IT GO?

I happened upon vegweb today quite by accident and came upon this recipe, I am not vegan by any means but am attempting to improve my diet and use less animal products. This recipe intrigued me and I had the ingredients on hand so I thought I would give it a try.
AMAZING!  The only thing I added was a teaspoon or so of dry mustard powder which I would do with any cheese sauce, I combined it with whole wheat elbows and made some great mac & cheese.

i was so impressed with this recipe and i cant wait to make it again!!! i didn't even add the nuts and it as still amazing!!  :>  My omni family didn't believe there was no cheese in it!!

whooaa, so you didn't use any cashews? did you include the pimento?

just wanted to make sure, because i don't have any nuts and if it works without them, i'll definitely try this!

i'm sure the nuts would create a thicker texture, but i just used it as a cheese sauce and it was delicious. i did use the pimentos...though i'm not really sure what purpose they serve...you should try it

I didn't have pimentos but i had a can of chipotle peppers.  I added a few spoons of the sauce (not too much, a little goes a LONG way).  I also used more flakes and nuts.

I have a question I have never had pimentos before and I was wondering if those are hot?  I have interstital cystitis and I can not have anything hot spicy or with acid.

i'd check the label for the acid, but they shouldn't be spicy at all.
