1 box Super Pretzel Soft Pretzel Bites, or hard pretzels (sticks); pita bread works as well.

  • 2 cupSkinny Nacho “Cheese” Sauce without the hotel tomatoes (recipe below)
  • 1/2 plus 2 Tablespoons cup yellow mustard, prepared mustard (not seed); you may also use brown mustard or spicy mustard, or any type of mustard you like depending on the type of dip you are desire.

Mustard Cheese Ingredients: 

  • 3 small Idaho potatoes, washed, scrubbed, skin left on
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Tamari, liquid aminos or soy sauce
  • 1 Jalapeno; seeded and cut
  • 1 Tablespoon hot sauce (I used Chalupa)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup yellow mustard (do not blend in blender with the above ingredients)


  • Wash three averaged sized potatoes; cut into large chunks (leave skins on potatoes)
  • Clean and cut three large carrots and chop them the same size as potatoes
  • Cover in water
  • Boil for 20 minutes
  • While potatoes are boiling, put vegetable broth, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, jalapeno, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, hot sauce and soy sauce in a blender
  • Drain potatoes and carrots
  • Put potatoes and carrots into a blender; blend until smooth
  • Mixture will be thick; add water
  • Measure 2 cups of cheese sauce and put in a small sauce pan; reserve the rest in a different container (it makes a lot, so you can use it for other recipes throughout the week)
  • Add 3/4 cup yellow mustard and cook on low while pretzels cook

*You can also separate 2 cups of cheese, mix in the mustard and put in a container and microwave later.
