How do you make Vegan Nacho Cheese Sauce?
- Add cashews, water, nutritional yeast, vegan yogurt, cheese, and rest of ingredients -(except chopped pickled jalapeños) to your Nutra Bullet or blender (like a vitamix) and process until smooth. I don’t soak the cashews for this recipe and it works great! Super creamy!
- Now add the sauce and chopped jalapeños to a medium heavy bottomed pot .Bring to a simmer over medium heat and whisk continuously for a few minutes until it thickens.
- Serve warm with tortilla chips, loaded vegan nachos, burritos, quesadillas, or any mexican inspired dishes, or potatoes, over pasta,…etc! Enjoy! For full recipe instructions and ingredients see recipe card below.
