This cheesy sauce is great for mac n cheese
1/4 cup raw almonds or raw cashews(cashews are softer, so may work better in some blenders.)
2 cups water
1/2 - 1 tsp. salt (or less to your taste)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder
1 tsp - 1 Tbsp. lemon juice to taste. (More makes it a sharper cheese flavor, less a milder flavor)
1/3 cup roasted or fresh red bell pepper (optional for color)
Option: blend 1 tsp canned jalapeños for a great nacho-style cheese.
1. Blend all ingredients until smooth.
2. Pour into a saucepan and bring to a boil while stirring constantly.
3. It will thicken to nacho cheese consistency. Serve hot.
•This is great as a dip for chips, over taco salad, on tacos or burritos, over vegetables, and over baked potatoes.
•I love sautéing veggies, pouring cheesy sauce over the veggies, then serving the cheesy veggies over baked potatoes. Yummy!
•Add to broccoli soup for broccoli-cheddar soup.
•You can also use this over macaroni for macaroni and cheese.
