Preparation time
Cooking time

Ingredients

For 1 Batch(es)

Vegan 'Cheese" sauce

  • 75 grams raw cashews
  • 550 grams water
  • 35 grams nutritional yeast
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons corn starch/flour
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon regular paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 30 grams vegan butter/marg/coconut oil

Easy breezy vegan cheeze sauce Directions

  1. Weigh cashews into separate bowl and soak in hot water for approx 10 minutes. Drain and add to the mixing bowl. (This step is not necessary, but i find it helps the cashews blend up creamy smooth)
  2. Weigh in water and add all other ingredients, except butter/marg/coconut oil.
  3. Blend for 1 min 30 sec/speed 10
  4. Cook for 9 min/100ºc/speed 4. Mixture will be thick and creamy.
  5. Add butter/marg/coconut oil and mix 20 sec/speed 3
  6. Use right away, or pour into airtight container/jar for later use. Let cool a little before placing in the fridge. The mixture will be hot and will thicken as it cools.

Recipe notes

Tapioca or rice flour could also be used in this recipe. It may alter the consistency, however. Rice flour is a good option to sub for the wheat flour as it thickens well and is mild tasting. Tapioca can be used in place of the corn starch successfully, however, the mixture will be a little more "stringy" and "stretchy" (like cheese!) 

Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. 

Keep some in a squeezy bottle to squirt onto pizzas and nachos! 

This cheese sauce is nice and thick when cool and can be spread onto sandwiches for grilled cheese.
