And I've recently discovered the BEST and EASIEST vegan cheese sauce. I tried it on noodles and it definitely wins for the best "Mac and Cheese" substitute. Better than our hummus and sweet potato versions.
So what are the ingredients?
Pumpkin Cheese Sauce
Canned pumpkin puree
Nutritional Yeast and
+ a hefty pinch of sea salt
For the bowl I used about 2 tbsp of each as well as a little bit more water cause I wanted to be able to drizzle it. This would equal about 1 serving I'd say.
Here's the sauce mixed w/ some noodles, KD style
But this isn't what you came here to see!
Presenting the Nacho Supreme Quinoa Bowl
1/2- 3/4 cup of cooked quinoa
1 tsp chili powder
Chopped red pepper
Chopped green onion
1 sprouted corn tortilla (Baked in a 350F oven for about 10 minutes and crumbled)
1 serving of Pumpkin Cheese Sauce (recipe above)
First you layer the quinoa that has been mixed with chili powder on the bottom of the bowl. Next add your veggies, salsa and avocado (Add vegan sour cream if you're into that kind of thing). Top with tortilla pieces.
Drizzle on cheese sauce and garnish with a lime.

Tru Roots sent us some Sprouted Quinoa! You can really tell the difference when the grain is sprouted. It's a more hearty grain. Perfect for bowls!
I was also thinking you could put in some other nacho-ish stuff like maybe some smoked tempeh or shredded lettuce.
