Cashew Based Cheese Sauce

When eating plant-based, the hardest thing for me to substitute is usually cheese. If you are like me and put cheese on everything consider this recipe as a great alternative! This is a great cheese to use on veggie burgers or on top of nachos.


1 Cup Cashews (soaked overnight)⁣

2 Tbsp of Olive Oil ⁣

3/4 Cup Carrots - small dice ⁣

1/2 Cup Celery - small dice ⁣

1/2 Cup Onions - small chop⁣

1/2 Cup Yellow Pepper - small chop ⁣

1/4 tsp Cayenne⁣

1/4 tsp Paprika⁣

1/2 tsp Pepper⁣

1 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt⁣

1 Tbsp of Lemon Juice ⁣

1/4 Cup of Veggie Broth ⁣

Soak the cashews overnight.⁣

Add olive oil to a pan on medium-high heat. Add carrots first and cook for about 4 minutes. Next add onions, celery, and peppers. Add all of the seasonings and continue to stir. Cook until veggies are softened.⁣

Next cool vegetables in a bowl.

Once the vegetables are cooled - add drained cashews, veggies, lemon juice, and vegetable broth into a blender. Blend until smooth. If needed add more vegetable broth to obtain a smooth consistency.⁣
