Notes

This recipe uses up a bunch of vegan staples like nutritional yeast, maple syrup and veggie broth. But if you don't need to make this vegan and don't really want to go out of your way to buy these specialty ingredients, you definitely don't have to! You can substitute the nutritional yeast for cheese, use chicken broth or a bouillon cube, and add 1-2 teaspoons of sugar instead of maple syrup which will help to reduce the acidity from the tomato sauce.
