don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s cheese

That’s how the expression goes, right?


I tried this “gee whiz spread” recipe from Joanne Stepaniak’s nutritional yeast cookbook and was skeptical from the beginning. Nutritional yeast and great northern beans with lemon juice and pimento? I had to give it a shot; I mean, how enticing does a tuba accompanied by a violin sound? But in the context of the rest of the orchestra, it’s just fine. So after finding pimento, I threw it in with the rest of it in my handy food ninja and let it whirl away into what you see up there.

It’s orange. It’s spray-can-cheese-ish in consistency. But how dare you call this cheese? The smell alone has prevented me from tasting it. Tom ate it, but he said it’s more like hummus than cheese. So as for her suggestions to spread it on a burger for an “instant ‘cheeseburger,'” come on. We’re sticking with ChReese.

I hate that it was the first recipe I tried from this book. It got super good reviews on Amazon, so there’s gotta be something decent in there, right? Right?
