The best Cheezy sauce!

I just made a loaded baked potato stuffed with sauteed veggies for lunch.  I decided to make one of those cheezy sauces made from Nutritonal yeast flakes to top it with.  I've never made it before and thought it was about time I venture out and try it. I was really pleased with the results!  This isn't just great as a potato topper, it's a great sauce for mac & cheese, maybe even a soy Philly cheeze steak!  I'm gonna run with this one.  :)
Here's the recipe:

1/4 cup Nutritional yeast flakes
2 Tbsp. GF flour blend (use what brand you like)
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 cups water or nutmilk of choice for creamier consistency
1 T. Earth Balance margarine
1 t. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

Whisk the first four ingredients in a small saucepan till combined.  Add the water and turn on the heat to medium.  Continue whisking till very well combined and add the olive oil and margarine.  Stir occasionally till thick.  Stir in mustard and apple cider vinegar and turn off the heat.  Adjust flavors with lemon juice or extra salt to your liking.  Serve immediately.

I'm going to continue experimenting with this one.  I'm seeing a spicy nacho cheeze sauce in the near future for burros, nachos, bean dip, who knows?  I'll post it when I perfect it.  In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy the crisp November weather with a cup of Oolong tea.
