1 C. oats
1/4 C. nutritional yeast
2 Tbls. cornstarch
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. salt
6 oz. jar fire roasted red peppers in water*
1 Tbls. cider vinegar or lemon juice
2 tsp. bottled hot sauce (I used Cholula Chipotle)
1/8 tsp. liquid smoke
2 C. hot water
Combine ingredients in high speed blender (Vitamix, Nutribullet) and blend for 5 minutes. It will get hot and thicken. Serve immediately.
Store leftover in airtight container in refrigerator. Reheat in saucepan, adding a little water if necessary to get desired consistency.
*I blended a 12 oz. jar of roasted red peppers, then measured out half and saved the rest for another use.
