Upon trying to incorporate some vegan and raw recipes into my diet, I was very interested in experimenting with snack foods.  You see, what I and many of us have an issue with is snacks, so if I could ‘arrest’ those bad snacks and replace them with the goods ones, then I would be ok.

Additionally, upon trying to experiment ‘dairy free’, I came upon this one.  Once I tried it, I liked it.   So now, I’m sharing this with you.

Now, I’d like you to know that I love this sauce.  This is a:

 

  • Easy homemade cheese sauce
  • An easy nacho cheese sauce
  • An easy vegan cheese sauce
  • An easy mac n cheese sauce
  • An easy cheddar cheese sauce (can pass for cheddar cheese)
  • This is just an overall all easy cheese sauce

I love it and I hope you will, too.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked and mash butternut squash
  • ¾ cup plain, unsweetened non dairy yogurt
  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ onion, quartered
  • 5 tbsp nutritional yeast (more or less if needed)
  • ¼ cup raw cashews, soaked for a minimum of 2 hours
  • 3 tbsp tapioca flour
  • Salt TT

Directions

  1. Blend all of the ingredients in your Vitamix
  2. Blend until smooth and creamy occasionally stopping to scrap down the sides of the jar
  3. Transfer to a heavy medium saucepan
  4. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon until thick. About 2-5 minutes
  5. Taste. If you’d like to add more of a cheesy flavor, add more nutritional yeast
  6. Store in a covered container in the frig. Will keep for about 4 days in the frig

Chipotle Cheese
If you’d like to add chipotle to the sauce, add ½ chipotle chile in adobo sauce when you blend the ingredients. When you’re cooking the mixture add more if you want a hotter taste.

Jalapeno Cheese
If you’d like to add jalapenos to the sauce, add ¼ -1/2 cup of medium or hot jalapenos when you blend the ingredients. When you’re cooking the mixture add more if you want a hotter taste.
