Vegan Nacho Cheese

This nacho cheese sauce is perfect as a dip for chips or veggies, or drizzled on baked potatoes.

This versatile vegan cheese sauce, created by cooking instructor Katherine Lawrence, is easy to make and delicious.

What you need:

2-1/2 cups water
1 cup raw cashews
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 onion
4 cloves garlic
1 scallion, white and green parts
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup soy crumbles (optional)
1/4 cup diced tomatoes (optional)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (optional)
1/4 cup chopped jalapeños

 

What you do:

  1. In a blender or food processor, add all ingredients and process until smooth.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add sauce and cook for 15 to 20 minutes until desired thickness is reached. Stir often to eliminate lumps.
  3. For a spicy vegan queso, stir in soy crumbles, tomatoes, cilantro, and jalapeños after sauce has reached desired thickness.
