Vegan Nacho Cheese

What we love most about this Nacho Cheese Sauce is it's versatility. You literally can put this on EVERYTHING - the possibilities are endless. Not to mention, if you have a Vitamix or any other high speed blender, you'll be able to cook it completely in the blender! BUT if you don't, don't worry- it still heats up quickly in a saucepan.


TIP: Forgot to soak your cashews? Boil cashews for 20 minutes on medium- high heat.


Shopping List

  • 1 cup cashews (soaked overnight)

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plant- based milk

  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 5 pickled jalapeños + 3 TBSPS of the juice

  • 1 tsp. tomato paste

  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1 tsp. onion powder

  • 1 tsp. tapioca starch

  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt


Directions


Drain and rinse soaked cashews. Add cashews, plant- based milk, nutritional yeast, red bell pepper, jalapeños & it's juice, tomato paste, garlic powder, onion powder, tapioca starch, and sea salt to a high speed blender. If your blender has a "hot" or "soup" setting, use that to blend together the cheese sauce until it's complete. If not, combine all ingredients in blender until well combined. Then transfer to a saucepan to heat to desired temperature, and serve.
