  1. This recipe killed me.
    Not in work, or like poison, but in taste. HOLY COW MACKERAL BATMAN THIS IS AMAZING!!

    I think I subbed coconut milk and then topped off with the soy milk, and added some nutritional yeast for extra cheesy flavor, but even without my additions it was so good! 900x will make again.
