One sauce. A hundred ways to use it!
This amazing, vegan cheese sauce is the perfect sauce because you can use over pasta, in burritos, in cheesy potatoes, as a chip dip, over enchiladas, as a base for a cheesy soup, over veggies, as a topping for toast …
Aaaaannd … it makes the most scrumptious vegan lasagna.
And, it’s nutritional-yeast-free. (Which makes us happy since we try to avoid that ingredient.)
And, what’s more, it’s easy.
Just dump a few ingredients in your blender jar, hit blend, and *poof*, you have this luscious, creamy sauce that has a fascinating ability to take just about any ingredients from your pantry or refrigerator and transform them into a delicious meal.
With its high calorie count and its complete lack of fiber, regular dairy cheese (despite what the media tells you) isn’t exactly a health food and is a disaster for weight loss. But this homemade vegan cheese is another story. Not only does it offer you a good dose of fiber (great for weight loss!), but it also provides you with vitamin K, manganese, and iron. Plus, it’s one of the few oil-free vegan cheese recipes out there.
Vegan Cashew Cheese Sauce (without nutritional yeast)
Yield 1 3/4 cups

- Rinse cashews in a colander under very hot water. Drain very well.
- Place all ingredients in blender and blend until very smooth.
1. It may take several minutes to blend if you don’t have a powerful blender. Mixture should be very smooth with no graininess.
2. If you have a powerful blender, just peel and trim a medium carrot and place in blender whole. No need to slice and measure.
